Maury Povich recently attended the 50th Daytime Emmy Awards with his wife, Connie Chung. The longtime couple looked great together as they posed for photos during the night out at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel located in Los Angeles.

Maury wore a black tuxedo, while Connie opted for black pants and a hot pink buttoned-up blazer. Connie kept it simple with minimal makeup, dangly earrings, and a white clutch to complete the look.

Connie presented Maury’s award

Connie presented her husband with his Lifetime Achievement Award for his daytime talk show — Maury — which ended last year. She welcomed Maury to the stage with a short, powerful introduction, praising his work over the years. “I know that you think he’s been determining the paternity of every child in America all his life. But no, in his 67 freaking years in television, he’s been a news reporter and a news anchor and old fashioned talk show host interviewing world leaders, politicians, members of Congress, authors, movie stars and even Julia Child,” she said.

Maury took to the stage while the audience cheered his name, but before receiving the honor, he paid tribute to the Gold and Silver Circle inductees. The group consists of those who “have performed distinguished service within the television industry, setting standards for achievement, mentoring, leadership and professional accolades for 50 or 25 years.”

He left the stage, but not without raising the award to Rupert Murdoch, who once said, “Maury, we’re more interested in winning viewers than awards.” “Rupert, the hell with that,” Maury exclaimed with his Emmy in the air.

Maury and Connie’s lasting union

Maury and Connie have been married for nearly four decades and share an adult son named Matthew. They met while Connie worked as a copygirl at a little Washington D.C. TV station. “He was a big star, and I was just a kid… He was very gruff and very matter-of-fact. He never looked up,” she recalled in a 2020 interview. “I kept thinking, ‘Maybe someday he’ll acknowledge that I’m a human being.’”

They met again in 1977 as co-workers at CBS until Maury got fired. According to Maury, getting laid off earned him some pity from Connie, who was the only person he knew in Los Angeles. “I always said the way to get to Connie’s heart is first, she pities you, and then she can love you. She pitied the fact that I was fired,” he said.

They dated for six years before tying the knot and have been together ever since, thanks to excellent communication and conflict resolution. “Whatever discussions or arguments go on during the day, once the head hits the pillow, it’s over and not to be continued the next morning. It is not on my mind,” Maury said. “There’s no need for any do-overs. Maybe that’s the reason why we’re still married.”
