Started as the co-star of the "Today" show. First female network news anchor. Pioneer of soft-ball question celebrity specials. Her father, Lou Walters, owned the famous Latin Quarter nightclub in New York City. A visitor recently questioned whether Ms. Walters was Jewish. Adding that Walters spoke a few Yiddish words on "The View" television program and it came out pretty awful. This made the visitor think Barbara would be happier talking Laotian. This comment made us laugh. But, Yiddish fluency aside, Walters is Jewish and even keeps on marrying Jewish men (three to date).
Radio talk show host in the NY area. Born and raised in N. Carolina. Correction: His show is syndicated nationwide. A moderate conservative. His trademark is speaking a lot of languages. He lost a close race congressional race to Bella Abzug. He startled Chinese-American voters by campaigning in Cantonese.
Radio talk show host in the New York area for many years.
Host of "Politically Incorrect". His father is Irish Catholic and his mother is Jewish. He was raised Catholic. Maher says he feels more "Jewish" than "Irish"--whatever that means. Perhaps James Joyce can explain it.
Actor who had a talk show for several years on CNBC.
Television producer who had an interesting talk show in NYC in the 60s and 70s. Intelligently covered topics few others did.
Talk show host. Orthodox Jew.
Radio Talk Show Host and ex Mayor of New York City
Host of his own cable talk show. Former correspondent for "20/20". Father, non-Jewish Puerto Rican. Mother, Jewish. Geraldo had a bar mitzvah, which he says was a bit odd. (It was a very modest affair and the juxtaposition of the two families was pretty funny). Rivera is also a lawyer, but has not practiced since he went into journalism over twenty-five years ago. He is making serious noises about running for mayor of New York City in 2001. A fun fact is that one of his many ex-father-in-laws is famous novelist Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (who is not Jewish). Vonnegut does not have anything much nice to say about Geraldo. We gather that Geraldo was quite a "rake" in his youth.
