| The Legendary David Susskind |
Show Comes to JLTV
David Susskind started his career in show biz as a press agent for Warner Brothers. Next, he became a talent agent. Ultimately, he became talent himself. His TV program Open End
began in 1958 in New York City and was appropriately titled, broadcasting without a definitive end time - the program continued until Susskind or his guests were too tired to continue. In 1961, Open End
was constrained to two hours and went into national syndication. The show was retitled The David Susskind Show in 1967 and continued until his death in 1987. During his almost 30-year run as a talk show host, Susskind covered countless controversial topics of the day and interviewed such luminaries as President Harry Truman, David Steinberg, Jerry Lewis, Mel Brooks, Milton Berle and Anne Landers. He left a legacy as a host and producer of intelligent TV programming with wide appeal and JLTV is proud to bring back this series for new generations to see. Click here
