Female Talk Show Hosts

With talk shows on TV it helps people to let out bad feelings and good feelings too. Venting out the bad emotions of the past is a healing process; talk shows are a huge part of that. Just watching talk shows on different topic matters; assist people with connecting some-how with the guests. Talking out our problems is much better than suppressing (holding in) our problems. Watching certain talks will help bring our feelings forward, but once we do that; we have to learn what to do with those emotions.

The bad memories from someone's past will make many people feel emotional; then we start to think of the people that hurt us. When this happens we have to quickly begin to forgive that person, because if we don't the unforgiveness will have an effect on us.

There are female talk shows that many people enjoy watching. Sometimes talk shows on TV have topic matters that are fun. People like talk show topics that the whole family can watch, and that entertains us. Female talk show hosts have touch on many topics for their shows such as: family budgeting, dating tips, spousal abuse, child abuse, fun games, gift give-a-ways, beauty tips, talent search, celebrity entertainment, etc.

Many young adults are taking college courses in Journalism, because they want to be an interviewer in television or radio. A college course in Journalism can lead to being a successful television host in talk shows or in other forums of interviewing.

Talk Show Lists

Some female talk show hosts won't do a show on touchy topics such as 'abuse.' Each female talk show host has their own style of running their show. Each talk show host wants their audience to notice a difference in their show, compared to the next talk show.

The first talk show some people begin watching in the late 80s and early 90s were: The Arsenio Hall Show, The Richard Bey Show, The Johnny Carson Show, David Letterman, Geraldo Rivera, Phil Donahue, Montel Williams, and a few others. Some male talk show hosts have opened the door for women to become talk show hosts as well. There was a time when there was not any woman with their own talk show. And then in the 90s you eventually started to see more females with their own talk shows, or co-hosting alongside a male talk host; which wasn't a bad start.

Before talk shows came along such as Oprah Winfrey and her style of talk; many family households didn't really talk about molestation, family secrets, biological fathers, bullying, etc. Just a small few of talk shows that were started in other decades are still up and running today.

      Hi Debbie, these talk show hosts get paid to share their opinions on certain topics; we all have our own opinions, and sometimes their opinions are not the same as we the audience. Thanks for stopping by.
