Sally was born on 25th February 1935 in Easton, Pennsylvania. She graduated from the Easton Area High School. Father Jesse Lowenthal was engaged in an export business and mother Zelda Lowenthal used to run an art gallery. While in New York, she used to work for an AM Radio station called WFAS.

Her first television program was a cooking show. Even though her career didn’t start off well, but Sally never gave up. She has even worked as a disc jockey, news reporter, and used to be a TV chat show host too.
