Voice Expert Quoted on Betty White
Facebook fans have been pushing hard to get Betty White (pictured) -- known for The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls, and more recently a popular Super Bowl commercial -- hired as a guest host of Saturday Night Live (and it looks like White may get the gig, though with backup; White is 88 years old).
The story was covered this morning at amNY, and the Voice's own Sharyn Jackson was enlisted to discuss the enduring appeal of the program. Though Jackson is described as "co-organizer of the third annual 'We Love The Golden Girls' drag party" at the Stonewall Inn (the basis of her expert status), she modestly failed to disclose her Voice affiliation, which omission we are remedying here.
