Fran Ambrose was a radio talk show host.

One evening on her show, Ambrose discussed the topic of matricide with her guest, Dr. Leo Richmond. A caller, identifying himself as "Ed" called the show and described his life leading up to murdering his own mother.

Richmond soon realized that "Ed" was actually Norman Bates and urged Ambrose to trace Bates' calls.
