    He is currently married to Marlo Thomas, whom he met as a guest on his show.
    In 1995, even though his show was based in New York, 'Donahue' was not on any New York station due to low ratings.
    His show spawned the birth of many imitator talk shows, with racier and more explicit content.
    He is a Ralph Nader and Hillary Clinton supporter.
    He was against the bombing of Afghanistan after the September 11 terrorist attacks.
    His talk show lasted 29 years and spanned 7,000 shows.
    His show explored topics such as feminism, the AIDS crisis, racial inequality, and education.
    He is a graduate of Notre Dame.
    In 1994, he succeeded in getting permission from a convicted murderer to film the murderer's legal execution in the gas chamber. The courts, however, refused to give the FCC permission to air the event.
    He once allowed Morton Downey, Jr., who was the complete political opposite of Phil, to appear on his show, and Phil returned the favor by appearing on Morton's show.
