BARBARA WALTERS
Walters signed this typed letter to TV Guide's art director Jerry Alten "Barbara" in 1979, thanking him for "the large copy of my TV Guide cover". Accompanied by original mailing envelope.
Typed letter signed "Barbara". 1 page, 7x10 ¼, on ABC News letterhead. Dec. 14, 1979. Addressed to Mr. Jerry Alten, TV Guide, Radnor, Pennsylvania. In full: "Dear Jerry: How thoughtful of you to send me the large copy of my TV Guide cover! Your kindness is deeply appreciated. Sincerely, BW/tk". Lightly creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition. Accompanied by: Original mailing envelope. Postmarked New York City, Dec. 20, 1979. Addressed to Mr. Jerry Alten, TV Guide, Radnor, Pennsylvania. Engraved with ABC News return address on flap. Top edge has been neatly cut open. One of television's most acclaimed journalists, Walters, born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1929, received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in May 2000. The groundbreaking broadcaster boasts a host of firsts: first female co-host of the Today show (NBC, 1974); first female network news anchor (ABC, 1976) at a then record-breaking salary of $1 million annually; first to arrange a joint interview with Egypt's President Anwar Sadat and Israel's Prime Minister Menachem Begin (1977) and first to present an hour-long primetime interview with Fidel Castro. She has also arranged exclusive interviews with personalities from General Colin Powell to David Geffen (his first television interview) and the principals in the O.J. Simpson trial. Walters has won two Emmys (1976 and 1983) and numerous other awards for her work, which today includes hosting the ABC news magazine 20/20, her Barbara Walters Specials and co-hosting (and co-executive producing) The View.
