(WREG-TV) In 1974, Frances Kelley was the first women to co-host a television talk show in the MidSouth area.
She sat along side Olin Morris, general manager at that time of WREG-TV, to co host Good Morning from Memphis.
Frances is celebrating her 80th birthday and came back to visit so we decided to surprise her with a reunion with Olin.
Many people remember the live interview Frances did with then KKK grand wizard David Duke when she asked him, “Honey, why do you hate me?”
After leaving television, Frances went on to be an evangelist and has become very well-known in the field.
A birthday celebration is being held for Frances Kelley Monday at Pentecostal Temple COGIC located at 229 S. Danny Thomas.
Events begin at 6:30 p.m.
