R.I.P. Marilyn Turner

Post by lidoshuffle » Thu May 16, 2024 5:41 pm

Clear memories of her on channel 7 back in the 70's as a lad growing up in the Metro Detroit area, seems she was on our TV often back then, especially when my dad flipped on the 6pm newscasts...

Me too.

Wasn't it a bit of a scandal when her and John Kelly first got together?

I remember a Kelly & Company episode that featured as guests representatives of Little People of America. In the sit-down interview, the guests voiced their complaint that other adults often treated them as if they were children. Marilyn eventually ventured out to talk to the audience, many of whom were also group members. Without missing a beat, she approached one member, an adult, saying, “My you’re a vocal one. What do you have to say for yourself?”

Who was the co-host with Marilyn when John left, and the show was briefly renamed Company?
Please look at my signature.

Nikki Grandberry took over for John Kelly. She passed away in 2020.
