Charlotte Talks Web Extra: Remembering Carol Channing


Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019

From our archives, Carol Channing's May 2006 conversation with Mike Collins at Spirit Square's Duke Energy Theater.

Broadway legend Carol Channing died today at her California home at the age of 97.

Channing visited Charlotte in May 2006 for a performance of her one-woman show, "The First 80 Years Are the Hardest," at Central Piedmont Community College.

Mike Collins sat down with Ms. Channing and her husband, Harry Kullijan, in front of a live audience at Spirit Square's Duke Energy Theater.

"She had the energy of a 20-year-old, and the memory of one too," Mike said today. "She remembered her career, life and everyone she met in vivid detail."
