Before HBO’s “The Newsroom,” CBS’s “Murphy Brown” was giving viewers its version of broadcast news.
Twenty-five years later, the cast of the hit CBS comedy are reuniting on TV once again with another famous newswoman Katie Couric.
On Thursday, Dec. 12, Bergen, Faith Ford, Charles Kimbrough, Joe Regalbuto, and Grant Shaud, along with show creator Diane English, will appear on syndicated daytime talker “Katie.”
They’ll share behind-the-scenes stories, their most important episodes and the show’s lasting impact on pop culture.
Couric’s on-air reunion follows a day after the cast reunites on Wednesday, Dec. 11 at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art. The program, called “Murphy Brown: A 25th Anniversary Celebration,” is sponsored by Encore Classic, which currently runs repeats of the series.
“Murphy Brown” originally aired from 1988-1998. It starred Bergen as a famous investigative journalist and news anchor for “FYI,” a fictional CBS television newsmagazine.
