Betty White, whose television career spanned more than 80 years, has died. She was 99 years old.

Considered to be a trailblazer of the small screen, White’s career was longer than any other female entertainer, having worked in the industry since 1939.


Known for her iconic sitcom roles on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Golden Girls," White is considered to be the first woman to create a television sitcom and also was a staple of many popular game shows of the 1960s, all of which helped give her the title of "first lady of television."

White continued to act late into her life, starring in the TV Land sitcom "Hot in Cleveland," which ran from 2010 to 2015.

Throughout her career, White’s work earned her eight Emmy Awards, three Screen Actors Guild Awards, three American Comedy Awards and one Grammy Award.

She was the first woman to win an Emmy Award for Outstanding Game Show Host for "Just Men!" in 1983.

White was inducted into the Television Hall of Fame in 1995 and named a Disney Legend in 2009.

In an interview with journalist Katie Couric to celebrate the actress' 95th birthday, White said she considered herself the "luckiest old broad on TV."
