About Phyllis George
Phyllis George was an American businesswoman, sportscaster, author and beauty queen whose initial claim to fame was in the latter regard. However, as the years progressed she ventured successfully into the other fields and in regards of sports casting career, she is highly considered a pioneer for women in that field.
Her parents’ names are James George and Diantha Cogdell.
From 1979 to 1998 she was married to John Y. Brown, who was the Governor of Kentucky. And they had two children, Lincoln Tyler Brown and Pamela Ashley Brown.
In 1970 she won the “Miss Texas” beauty pageant, and the following year she was named “Miss America”.
Shortly thereafter she served as a sportscaster for the NFL. This was truly revolutionary not only due to her limited experience in that field but also because back in those days women didn’t traditionally serve as sportscasters.
She later went on to co-host other shows such as “Candid Camera” and “CBS Morning News”.
She founded two businesses, one dealing in chicken fillets (Chicken by George) and the other beauty (Phyllis George Beauty). And in 1991, in relation to the former enterprise, George was declared Celebrity Women Business Owner of the Year by the National Association of Women Business Owners.
Being married to John Y. Brown during his governorship, she actually served as the First Lady of Kentucky from 1979 to 1983.
Additionally, she co-authored a number of books, primarily on the subject of crafts.
She passed away due to a blood disorder.
Some of the prominent personalities the George had an opportunity to interview includes ex-American president and politician, Bill Clinton.
