The WBCO Presents:
Morning Edition Host & Producer at WHYY (Philadelphia's NPR Station)
Award-winning radio host Jennifer Lynn is anchor of WHYY’s Morning Edition, the most comprehensive morning radio news program in the region. Broadcast on 90.9 FM and streamed on WHYY.org from 6 to 10 a.m. Monday to Friday, Morning Edition provides listeners with up-to-the-minute news, analysis, interviews, commentaries and arts and features stories produced by WHYY and NPR. Lynn will write, produce and deliver many of those segments during each broadcast and conduct newsmaker interviews with local civic and cultural leaders. Lynn is an award-winning broadcast journalist, news presenter and producer. A native Delawarean and graduate of Boston University, she began her career in New England.
She joined WHYY in 2001 as a newsreader and producer and has served as longtime stand-in local host for WHYY’s Morning Edition and NewsWorks Tonight as well as NPR’s All Things Considered. She most recently produced Voices in the Family with Dr. Dan Gottlieb. Previously, Lynn held positions at various broadcast stations, including WKSZ in Media, Pennsylvania, WILM in Wilmington, Delaware, WKXE/WNHV in Hartford, Vermont and WPNH in Plymouth, New Hampshire. 2014 marks her 28th year in radio. “An already-familiar voice to WHYY-FM listeners, Jennifer Lynn is a consummate broadcast professional,” said WHYY President and CEO William J. Marrazzo. “Her trusted presence goes a long way in helping area citizens learn about — and engage in — the important issues of our times.”
Chris Satullo, vice president of News and Civic Dialogue at WHYY, said: "Anyone who has listened to Jennifer Lynn handle the Morning Edition duties during this interim period knows why we hired her for the long run. She consistently brings to WHYY's morning audience a sense of sophistication and humor, along with a hunger to get to the heart of the news." Lynn resides in Bala Cynwood with her two sons, Basil and Seth Dubrosky.
