Sue Johanson, the legendary Canadian presenter best known for her honest and outspoken sex education show, has died at the age of 93.
CBC reported on Johanson’s death after confirming the details with her representative. Johanson died surrounded by her family at a long-term care home in Thornhill, Ontario.
“My mother was great. She could be anywhere, anytime and people would recognize her voice,” said Jane Johanson CBC news network. “She never pushed people aside. She treated everyone absolutely the same. She was never judgmental, nor was she condescending or disapproving of every question she was asked… I think everyone felt like they had a different mother or grandmother in Sue.”
In addition to his nursing career, Johanson was known for creating and hosting The Sunday Night Sex Show — an informative live sex advice call-in show that began airing on Toronto radio stations in 1984. A television version of the show aired on the W Network from 1996 to 2005 alongside Talk Sex With Sue Johanson, beginning in 2002 and ending in 2008.
Outside of her own shows, Johanson has appeared on talk shows such as Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. She also played the character of Dr. Sally in Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi: The Next Generation.
ComingSoon extends its condolences to Johanson’s family and friends.
