2 days ago
Today’s episode is the second in a two-part series of The Story Behind. The subject of these two episodes couldn’t be contained into just one show. We’ll be celebrating her 95th birthday, which was on Tuesday, January 17th, by dedicating this week to her contribution to television, Hollywood and her various charity works. In the previous episode, we talked about about her early days in radio and television; her awards and critics; and her title as the First Lady of Game Shows. In this episode, we’ll be talking about the roles she’s probably best known for, her incredible love of animals and her charity work, and her recent return to the spotlight because of a simple Snickers commercial. I’m your host, Emily Prokop, and this is The Story Behind Betty White | Part 2: The Later Years.
