> Description 
She hosted a radio call-in advice show distributed by NBC Talknet from 1981 to 1987, but is most famous for hosting the television talk show, Sally, which ran in first-run syndication from 1985 to 2002. She was best known to TV viewers for her big, red-framed glasses, and the Kleenex tissues she handed out liberally to crying guests. In later years, her show moved toward topics such as unwed mothers who did not know the father of their babies, and wild, sexually active teenagers who were sent to boot camp; in this regard, her show had become reminscient of shows hosted by Maury Povich and Jerry Springer. At its core, her show had not previously touched such topics, going for less controversial subject matter.

Sally spoke out in the press against the change to more raunchy material, but she continued the show, insisting that she'd rather be on television with lower ratings rather than end her career entirely. When her talk show became one of the lowest-rated talk shows in syndication by the early 2000s, the show was eventually canceled by the production company in charge of distribution.
