American talk-show host, a born natural with intellect, humor, tattle and interaction; continuous TV exposure from the 1960s to 2000s. He struggled with black depression until helped by medication in early 1982.

His turn-of-the-century two story house, designed by Stanford White, was destroyed by a fast-moving fire on 18 March 1997 in Montauk, New York. At the same time, a producer sued him for $35 million for leaving his new syndicated radio show on 20 January after two weeks because of a manic-depressive episode. Recovered, he had expected to return in March 1997.

Cavett has co-authored two books with Christopher Porterfield, Cavett (1974), his autobiography, and Eye on Cavett (1983). Cavett currently writes a blog, published by The New York Times, entitled "Talk Show: Dick Cavett Speaks Again."

He married actress Carrie Nye on 4 June 1964. Nye died on 14 July 2006 after suffering from lung cancer. In 2010, Cavett married author Martha Rogers in New Orleans, Louisiana. From this marriage, Cavett has two step-children.
