Charlotte Peters

Charlotte Peters earned the love and affection of female viewers in St. Louis with her ability to throw out all the stops to entertain her audience. After a few singing appearances on an early local TV show called “To the Ladies,” she exploded onto St. Louis television with a daily program in 1956 and for the next 14 years was seen on KSD-TV and KTVI. Family members confirmed that the bits on her shows were never formally written out. The shows were fast-paced, playing out before the live studio audience and viewers at home. Co-workers described an atmosphere of high energy and spontaneous creativity, which earned Peters superstar status in her hometown of St. Louis.
