What Really Happened to Dorothy Kilgallen? Next on TVC

Investigative reporter, former criminal defense attorney and cable news legal analyst Mark Shaw will join us on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

Most of you probably remember Dorothy Kilgallen because of her weekly appearances on What’s My Line?, the popular CBS Sunday night prime time game show that made her household name during the 1950s and early 1960s. Some of you may also think of Kilgallen because of the mysterious nature of her death in the early morning hours of Nov. 8, 1965: a case that was officially ruled accidental, but which remains unsolved to this day.

Kilgallen, however, was a pioneer in many respects, leaving her mark in print and radio, as well as television, long before Oprah Winfrey. She was also a Pulitzer Prize-nominated, nationally syndicated columnist for the New York Journal-American, and a crack investigative reporter whose penchant for finding truth and justice—and, particularly, her series of articles that investigated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy—won her admiration from news reporters and editors alike.

But Dorothy Kilgallen also made a lot of enemies. In fact, a new book—The Reporter Who Knew Too Much: The Mysterious Death of What’s My Line? TV Star and Media Icon Dorothy Kilgallen—makes a compelling argument that Kilgallen was actually murdered by one of her enemies because she was getting too close to the truth about the Kennedy assassination. Not only that, but new evidence uncovered as a result of The Reporter Who Knew Too Much recently led the New York District Attorney’s office to reopen the Kilgallen case.

Investigative reporter and former criminal defense attorney Mark Shaw is the author of The Reporter Who Knew Too Much. Author of twenty-five books, and onetime legal analyst for CNN, ESPN and USA Today, he will talk about the life, death and legacy of Dorothy Kilgallen—and why reopening her case matters—when he joins us in our second hour.

The first hour of this week’s show will include Part 2 of our tribute to comedian “Professor” Irwin Corey as part of The Sounds of Lost Television.
