Trivia (4)

She has stated in interviews that she was adamantly against the trashy, Jerry Springer-inspired direction that the content of her talk-show was taking in its later years. She states that she was under constant pressure from network execs looking for big ratings and, rather than quit, stayed on for the benefit of her long-time co-workers, whom she considered family.
The source of her famous red-framed glasses goes all the way back to her first broadcast news job. She was about to start taping on her first day of work when she tripped, breaking her glasses in the process. With only minutes before taping, she raced to the nearest store to find a replacement pair. She found that the only pair that matched her prescription was cheaply made, with red frames. This soon became her trademark.
Now hosts, with her husband and brother, a one hour weekday radio talkshow on the internet, via her website - www.sallyjr.com. [July 2004]
Her grandparents were all Jewish emigrants, her paternal grandparents from Poland and Russia, and her maternal grandparents from Lithuania and Russia.
