Buff Cobb, who hosted one of television’s earliest talk shows with her ex-husband Mike Wallace, has died at 82, reports the New York Times

Cobb hosted the program "Mike and Buff" with Wallace, known to most viewers for his almost 40 years as a "60 Minutes" correspondent, on CBS in the early 1950s. The show was based in New York and broadcast live with the couple debating a new topic each day and interviewing experts to try to reach an agreement, the article says.

The pair also hosted "All Around the Town," also on CBS, from 1951 to 1952, which involved them interviewing people at social events around New York City. Cobb and Wallace were married from 1949 until 1957, when they divorced, the story says.

Aside from television, Cobb also performed in stage productions and had small roles in several movies, such as 1946’s "Anna and the King of Siam," the article adds.
