WRAL's 'Femme Fare' Host Dies At 83

Posted December 27, 2004

— WRAL lost a dear friend over the weekend.

Bette Elliott was WRAL's award-winning editor of women's news. She died Sunday after a bout with pneumonia.

For years, Elliott hosted the popular program "Femme Fare" every morning at 10.

The program was a fixture on the Channel 5 lineup from 1962 until 1975.

"Femme Fare" started out as a simple cooking show, but later blossomed into a program WRAL labeled its "Magazine of the Air for the Modern Woman."

Elliott was 83 years old.
