Wonder Woman, Joan Benedict Steiger, plus Living Life One Blink at a Time: Next on TVC

Actress Joan Benedict Steiger and author Ismail and Cheryl Tsieprati will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

This week’s program will include a return visit from actress Joan Benedict Steiger. Joan’s television career ranges from such classic shows as The Steve Allen Show and the original Candid Camera, to General Hospital and Days of Our Lives. She also has two new movies coming out later this year, plus we’ll ask about her upcoming book, Brooklyn Baby, in which she writes about overcoming the loss of the three great loves in her life — one of which was Oscar winner Rod Steiger. Joan Benedict Steiger will join us in our first hour.

Speaking of people who have overcome obstacles, also joining us this week will be authors Ismail and Cheryl Tsieprati. In 1989, Ismail was running a very successful film and video production business when he learned that he had Amyothropic Lateral Sclerosis (aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease), a gradual weakening of nerve cells that allow the brain to control muscle movement. Most people with ALS die within five years of diagnosis. Ismail, however, is not only still alive, but he and Cheryl have continued to live life as fully as possible, despite his debilitating condition. We’ll learn about their amazing story, and the role that classic television plays in it, when Ismail and Cheryl join us at the end of our first hour.

Ismail and Cheryl’s book, One Blink at a Time, includes practical advice on how to face the challenges of living with ALS, plus a heartfelt foreword from Phil Gries.

Our second hour will include an encore presentation of our conversation with Mike Pingel, author of Channel Surfing: Wonder Woman, everything you want to know about the classic TV series starring Lynda Carter that currently airs Saturday nights on Me-TV. Plus: As David Letterman gets ready for his final week on CBS, we’ll take a look at the mark he left on late night television, both on NBC and CBS.
