Dr. Joyce Brothers, Popular Psychologist, Dies

For decades, on television, in print, sometimes even the movies, she was known as Dr. Joyce.

Joyce Brothers, the popular psychologist, columnist, and media personality, has died. She was 85.

Longtime publicist Sanford Brokaw says Brothers died Monday in New York City.

With a doctorate from Columbia University, she was a pioneer of the television advice show.

Her celebrity took off in 1955 after she entered a television quiz show called The $64,000 Question. She became the only woman to ever win the show’s top prize.
