On the morning of October 26, 1970 The Miami Herald carried the debut of Doonesbury. On that same date crosstown rival, and JOA partner, the evening Miami News was one of the papers that introduced the world to Mell Lazarus’ Momma.
Like the daily Doonesbury Momma went reruns in the 2010s, the last new Momma running in 2016.
The Miami News folded in 1988, but a little north, in Brevard County, Florida Today was running Momma, so senior Floridians still had their golden girl. Florida Today continues to carry Momma reruns these days (alongside reruns of the daily Doonesbury, The Amazing Spider-Man, For Better or For Worse, Peanuts, and Tiger).
