Who: Linda Bell Blue, executive producer, “Entertainment Tonight” and “The Insider”

Women in TV

Why: There is no more enduring daily show-business news source than “Entertainment Tonight,” and day in and day out it’s Ms. Bell Blue who puts it all together. This year, she guided the show in its leap to high-definition broadcasting. The Emmy Award-winning executive producer of “ET” and “The Insider,” Ms. Bell Blue has been acknowledged as one of TV’s most powerful women, and she’s the recipient of a STAR Award for individual achievement in television from the American Women in Radio & Television. “Passion for what you do determines your success, and I’m still driven with that passion to produce great television shows each day,” Ms. Bell Blue said. “Being recognized for the work I love to do is an honor.”

What: Linda Bell Blue has distinguished herself in the television industry as the longest-running executive producer (14 years) on TV’s No. 1 syndicated entertainment newsmagazine. In all that time, nobody has known Ms. Bell Blue as well as “Entertainment Tonight” anchor Mary Hart, who has been at that desk since 1982. Her praise for Ms. Bell Blue is unqualified: “She’s beautiful, incredibly talented, ferociously competitive and has an endless passion for making the best show every day, and I’m happy to call her my friend.”

    It’s been decades since “Entertainment Tonight” covered any of the mechaines of the entertainment industry. The show is nothing more than a sleazy TV answer to Us magazine.
