Love in the Afternoon to Soapdom.com, a wild ride in soaps and then some.

Merle Goldberg has worked in and out of daytime television since the launch of ABC’s on-air promotional campaign, LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON. Writing and producing promos for all three networks has given Goldberg the opportunity to work with some of daytime’s legendary actors; Ruth Warrick, Eric Braden, John McCook and more.  Goldberg co-wrote CBS SOAPBREAK, a limited series that still pops up in re-runs somewhere in Canada, and has segment produced several Daytime Emmy broadcasts.  She began contributing to Soapdom in 2004.  In addition to her work with Soapdom, Goldberg was a field producer and got to interview some of daytime’s hottest hunks; Jack Wagner, Lorenzo Lamas, Antonio Sabato, Jr., and Kristoff St. John for SoapNet’s Daytime Hottest Hunks Special in September 2005 and shared behind the scenes dish about the program with us at Soapdom.

As a television and feature film promo writer/producer Goldberg created campaigns for some of the biggest mini-series and movies of the 1980’s; THE WINDS OF WAR, THE DAY AFTER, SILKWOOD, and PRIZZI’S HONOR.

Goldberg’s written and Executive Produced, LANGUAGE SAYS IT ALL, an Academy-Award nominated documentary.  She continues to write documentaries, the multi-award winning STANDING ON MY SISTER’S SHOULDERS, and now in production, FATHER GREGG AND THE HOMEBOYS.

On the lighter side, Goldberg writes episodes for some of HGTV’s most popular shows; DESIGNER’S CHALLENGE and HOUSE HUNTERS. 

A real movie buff, Goldberg has worked on many of the American Film Institute’s 100 Greatest Shows and produced tribute packages for some Hollywood’s most important writers and

directors, Robert Towne, John Schelesinger, Bo Goldman, Carl Reiner,  David Milch, Daniel Taradash, and many more. 

Goldberg is most proud of the four years she spent interviewing Holocaust survivors, righteous Gentiles, and liberators for Steven Spielberg’s SURVIVORS OF THE SHOAH VISUAL HISTORY FOUNDATION. 

A graduate of the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music, Goldberg has studied French since she was 8 years old, which makes her a real Francophile.

Past Blast

Jeanne Cooper knows how to jingle those bells

If anyone knows how to haul out the hollies and deck the halls it is Jeanne Cooper (Katherine) of The Young and Restless. And she does it in pure Katherine Chancellor style in real-life.

"Of course! Class all the way. I wouldn't have it any other way," Cooper jokingly said. "Every year I look forward to the holidays, the decorating, the family, and the food."

Christmas Day is big at the Cooper household. It's a gathering place for the children and grandchildren, but this year, some of Cooper's children will be celebrating at a villa in Italy, while others will celebrate with her here.
