Lynn Sherr Biography

Award-winning broadcaster and author Lynn Sherr recently left ABC News after more than 30 years, including more than 20 as a correspondent with the ABC newsmagazine 20/20.

She has covered a wide range of stories, specializing in women's issues and social change, as well as investigative reports. She has received numerous awards, including an Emmy, two American Women in Radio and Television Commendation awards, a Gracie Award, and a George Foster Peabody Award.

Prior to her assignment at 20/20, Sherr was a national correspondent for ABC News, where she was also part of the network's political team for every election cycle through 2000. Sherr also reported on the NASA space shuttle program from its inception in 1981 through the Challenger explosion in 1986, anchoring almost every mission from launch to landing.

Before going to ABC in 1977, Sherr was a reporter for WNET-TV in New York and WETA-TV in Washington, DC, both public television stations. Prior to that, she reported for WCBS-TV in New York, The Associated Press in New York, and Condé Nast Publications.

She is the author of the memoir Outside the Box: My Unscripted Life of Love, Loss and Television News, published in September 2006; the biography Failure Is Impossible: Susan B. Anthony in Her Own Words; and co-author of Susan B. Anthony Slept Here: A Guide to American Women's Landmarks, as well as ten editions of "The Women's Calendar." Her best-selling book Tall Blondes offered a perceptive and highly praised look at one of wildlife's most endearing but little-understood animals - giraffes - and was also the subject of a one-hour documentary for the PBS Nature program. Her best-selling book America the Beautiful: The Stirring True Story Behind Our Nation's Favorite Song came out in 2001. She conceived and co-edited Peter Jennings: A Reporter's Life, which was published in 2007. She also wrote the forewords to The Mercury 13: The Untold Story of Thirteen American Women and the Dream of Space Flight and Smart Women Don't Retire: They Break Free. Her latest book is Swim: Why We Love the Water.

She draws from Ride’s diaries, files, and letters to create a rich biography and presentation of a fascinating woman whose life intersected with revolutionary social and scientific changes in America. Her revealing portrait is warm and admiring but unsparing. Sherr makes this extraordinarily talented and bold woman, an inspiration to millions, come alive.
