Psychic mediums John Edward and Char Margolis will read studio guests as part of the Katie show tomorrow. The popularity of TLC’s hit series Long Island Medium featuring Theresa Caputo has certainly cast a renewed spotlight on the abilities of mediums. Caputo is currently enjoying a sold-out national tour in between seasons of her recently renewed series. But long before Theresa there were a few other TV mediums that captivated viewers and skeptics alike; two of them — John Edward and Char Margolis — will be appearing on Katie Couric’s talker Katie on Thursday, Nov. 15.
Edward and Margolis will talk about life after death, how mediums communicate with those who have crossed over, and respond to criticisms of mediums being accused of being frauds. The segment will also include an interactive reading with the audience, where Edward and Margolis will read members of the studio audience and Skype with fans who have submitted their stories via the web, looking to connect with loved ones who have passed away. Also a guest of the episode is Randall Sullivan, whose new book Untouchable: The Strange Life and Tragic Death of Michael Jackson explores never-before-reported information about the King of Pop.
John Edward is best known for his TV series Crossing Over With John Edward (1994-2004 on Syfy) and John Edward Cross Country (WE tv). He’s been out of the TV spotlight for a few years but continued writing (he’s got a few New York Times bestsellers), doing private readings and touring. I interviewed Edward years back in Pasadena (I’ll unearth that interview and post/link later).
Margolis is author of Love Karma and Discover Your Inner Wisdom who professes that “Everybody has the gift of intuition. …Your gut will tell you.” She’s recently appeared on Access Hollywood giving predictions on celebrity couples, and on WGN, where she was a bit off.
