American talk show host, also known as Dr. Joy, who hosted a nationally syndicated call-in talk show for several decades, heard on numerous radio stations in the U.S. and Canada.

A graduate of Northeastern University in Boston, Massachusetts, with an M.A. and Ph.D. in psychology, she was a licensed clinical psychologist who was first on the air in Boston at WITS, where she did a program called Up Close and Personal in the late 1970s.

She wrote numerous books on life and dating, including It’s A Jungle Out There Jane, Dating for Dummies, The Nine Fantasies That Will Ruin Your Life, Capitalizing on Incompetence, Getting Unstuck, and Dating Disasters.

Browne was often compared as the antonym to radio psychologist Laura Schlesinger, and has inspired a whole legion of radio hosts after her including Errol Gluck of GluckRadio.

Browne was married once and had a daughter. She died in her New York City home on 27 August 2016, aged 71.
