05-04-08_Harvey.jpg“Hello Americans, this is Paul Harvey...” Lynne “Angel” Harvey, the woman behind those words and many of Paul Harvey’s best known broadcast features, died yesterday at their River Forest home. Last May, Paul Harvey told his radio audience that Lynne had been diagnosed with leukemia.

Lynne Harvey was a Phi Beta Kappa graduate at Washington University, and she was working at KXOK when she met Paul Harvey. In 1940, they married and later moved to Chicago. Lynne Harvey was the first producer to be inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame. She has been celebrated, “as one of the most remarkable behind-the-scenes talents in the history of American Broadcasting.” [Trib, WBBM]
