New York -  Dr. Joy Browne, the syndicated radio and television psychologist whose upbeat and approachable style made her a favorite for nearly four decades, has died.


Browne died Saturday in Manhattan, according to her daughter, Patience Browne, who did not give a cause of death. Dr. Browne was 71.

Born in New Orleans and a graduate of Rice University and Northeastern University, Browne began her on-air career in Boston in 1978 with a radio show on WITS and was still in syndication at the time of her death. She was regarded as a pioneer for radio therapists and was known for such advice as not dating for a year after a relationship had ended. She eventually hosted a TV show and wrote several books, including “Getting Unstuck” and “Nobody’s Perfect.”

Started to listen to her in my early 20's when I needed to hear her advice. I learned from her to look at other people's perspective instead of getting angry. I will sorely miss her but her podcasts live on!

Dr. Browne was a very intelligent lady that gave great advice. I've incorporated some of her wise thinking in my daily life. She will be missed.

May she rest in peace. She gave thousands of people great advice and provided others with the emotional strength they needed.

Do you know what you're talking about? From her NY Times obituary: She was born Joy Oppenheim on Oct. 24, 1944, in New Orleans, the daughter of Nelson Oppenheim, a life insurance salesman, and the former Ruth Strauss, a teacher.
