Stephanie Edwards (TV personality)
|Born||Stephanie Ann Edwards
November 8, 1943
|Occupation||Actress, television personality|
|Spouse(s)||Murray MacLeod (June 14, 1975 - present)|
Born in Kenyon, Minnesota, Edwards began her career as an actress, but became widely known as an on-air personality in the 1970s. She co-hosted ABC-TV's AM America jointly with Bill Beutel, the forerunner to Good Morning America. (She continued to be with GMA, often substituting for Joan Lunden.) Previously, she had hosted a similar west coast news and talk program in Southern California named AM Los Angeles along with Ralph Story.
Edwards was nominated in 1979 for a Daytime Emmy Award as Outstanding Host or Hostess in a Talk, Service or Variety Series, for her show "Everyday."
She is also the continuing co-host of the Tournament of Roses Parade on Los Angeles television channel KTLA (broadcast widely as a "superstation" across the US) with former game show host Bob Eubanks from 1978 to 2005, resuming again in 2009.
Tournament of Roses parade
For the 2006 KTLA Rose Parade broadcast, Edwards was replaced (after 28 years) as Eubanks' co-host in the main booth by KTLA morning news co-anchor Michaela Pereira and reassigned as an on-street reporter (having to stand outside in the rain while giving periodic live updates). Although all three were equally billed as co-hosts, the move created a storm of controversy and was seen as insensitive by many of Edwards' fans, as well as by local TV critics.
