Phil Donahue

Before departing for Chicago, talk-show host Phil Donahue stops to relax and pose with his Maltese dog, Teeda. Winning a national daytime Emmy award in 1977 helped bring him to national attention, but nothing helped more to make him a national star than when he began winning the Nielsen rating race over the competition in New York. Critical acclaim was his. The Chicago Tribune wrote that Donahue’s show reduced other talk shows “to the level of Tupperware parties.”
