The Ebersols' Inspiration
In November 2004, television executive Dick Ebersol, his wife, actress Susan Saint James, and their children suffered a tragic loss. Teddy, the youngest member of their family, died in a plane crash. Dick and his other son Charlie, who were also on the plane, barely escaped with their lives. On a previous Oprah show, the Ebersol family shared the life lessons they learned from their grief.
