Sally Jessy Raphael Biography
Raphael’s husband Karl Soderlund assumed the role of her supervisor, and was a partner in her two largest successes. Based on David Richards of The Washington Post, Tunick had auditioned several expected hosts, but had not yet found the correct one. Before going on the air, she determined that rather than doing a political show, she’d give guidance and discuss issues she understood a lot about, including relationship difficulties. Shortly, her guidance show had been heard on over 200 radio stations, and she developed a loyal band of supporters. Among the supporters turned out to be talk show legend Phil Donahue who happened to hear her show one night and enjoyed how she related to the crowd. She wasn’t so polished, but individuals who’d adored her radio show were quite positive about her being on TV. Her non-threatening and common sense style appealed to Dubrow, who believed she’d gain more self-assurance as she got some TV experience. By mid-October 1983, she was given her own show on KSDK TV in St. Louis. The Sally Jessy Raphal Show was just a half hour, but it had been the start of her successful career as a talk show host. Raphael became known to television viewers for her oversize red-framed eyeglasses, a hallmark that started completely by injury. In 1983, she started having trouble seeing the Teleprompter certainly, and she went to purchase some reading glasses in a closely shop. All they had was a pair with red frameworks, and being in a rush, she purchased them. While her supervisors disliked them, the crowd appeared to believe they looked great, so she kept wearing that design from then on. In 1989, Raphael won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Talk Show. During the 1990s, as competition in the talk show arena intensified, her show went toward more sensationalistic issues, as did many of another talk show hosts who were her contest, including Jerry Springer (who, at that time, was also broadcast by Multimedia Entertainment) and Maury Povich.
