4. What are her background and vital statistics? (Lynne Russell)

Lynne Russell was born in Orange, New Jersey, to John Russell
and Carmela Pasqualina Evangelista on November 1, 1946. Her
father was a career army officer, so her family moved
frequently while she was growing up. She studied nursing at the
University of Colorado, but later pursued a broadcasting career
at a small radio station. Lynne then got a radio job in Miami,
where she met her second husband, Jim Dunlap. They married in
1978, and divorced a few years ago. That same year was her
first TV news job, in Jacksonville, and over the next several
years she did TV news in Boston, Honolulu, and San Antonio,
until landing the job in Atlanta with the young Headline News
in 1983. In 1993 she became the first recipient of St.
Bonaventure University's Jandoli School of Journalism Award for
Excellence in Responsible Journalism.
