June 16, 1947 - Jinx Falkenburg airs Donna Reed interview.

Eugenia Lincoln "Jinx" Falkenburg was an American actress and model who married journalist and publicist Tex McCrary. Known as "Tex and Jinx", the couple pioneered and popularized the talk-show format, first on radio and then in the early days of television. They hosted a series of interview shows in the late 1940s and early 1950s that combined celebrity chit-chat with discussions of important topics of the day.

Donna Reed and her sister, model Heidi Mullenger, were featured on the show on this date.
