Mississippi Media Personality Cyrus Webb Pays Tribute to author Jackie Collins

For over 20 years media personality Cyrus Webb was a fan of international bestselling author Jackie Collins, however, in 2013 the Mississippi native also got to call her a friend.

As host of the radio show Conversations LIVE, Webb has interviewed over 6k guests in his 12 years on the air, but when it came to reaching out to Ms. Collin's publicist he was nervous. Imagine his excitement when the answer came back yes to an interview, and in 2013 the bestselling author made her first appearance on the program.

Calling Webb one of her favorite interviewers, Ms. Collins would return two other times: once in 2014 promoting her book CONFESSIONS OF A WILD CHILD and this year in June discussing her latest book THE SANTANGELOS. Also in June Webb traveled to New York to meet Ms. Collins for the first time and got a chance to interview her face-to-face for his web-series Cyrus Webb Presents.

Ms. Collins passed away on Sat. September 19, 2015. In this one-hour special Webb shares their three interviews together and pays tribute to the woman who touched millions around the world through the power of words.
