The cover of Broadcasting and Cable magazine, Aug 1999. Airbrush and watercolor for a cover story on new syndicated talk shows. Depicted left to right: Martin Short, Richard Simmons, Tia Carrere, Louie Anderson, ??? and Queen Latifah. I have no clue who the blonde lady is with the microphone raised up in the center. She must have debuted a syndicated TV talk show in 1999, but as I have long lost the actual magazine (just have the cover tear sheet), I can’t remember who she was. This was sixteen years ago… that’s a lot of ink, paint, and scotch under the bridge.
UPDATE: Two commenters figured out the mystery woman is Dr. Joy Browne. I atually had the name “Joy” stuck in my head for some reason but thought I was thinking of Joy Behr, who was on “The View” at the time, and that clearly is not her. Thanks for solving the mystery, Rich and Joe!
