Marjorie "Mickie" Silverstein, 72, an author, lecturer, and radio and television personality who won a Peabody Award in 1970 for radio-news investigative reporting, died March 15 in Los Angeles of complications from hepatitis.
Teaming up with friend Teddi Levison in the 1960s, Silverstein became a radio reporter at WRNG in Atlanta, where they won the Peabody for a half-hour documentary on strong-armed police tactics against blacks and hippies. They also hosted a daily talk show and later hosted a TV show in Philadelphia.
Relocating to Los Angeles in the 1970s, Silverstein and Levison hosted "The Mickie and Teddi Show" on KGBS for several years. They also co-hosted a weekly interview show on KHJ-TV, and Silverstein later hosted her own call-in radio show in Phoenix.
The two women collaborated on three books: "Have You Had It in the Kitchen?," "Marrying Again" and a novel, "Number One Sunset Blvd."
In recent years, the Chicago-born Silverstein served on the Los Angeles County Children's Planning Council.
