Lynne 'Angel' Harvey Dies At 92

CHICAGO -- May 5, 2008: Lynne Harvey, wife of legendary broadcaster Paul Harvey, died Saturday at age 92 after a yearlong battle with leukemia. Mrs. Harvey, known to millions of Paul Harvey fans as "Angel," was a director, producer, writer, and editor who, among many other accomplishments, helped develop the beloved "Rest of the Story" feature.

A broadcast pioneer, Lynne Harvey was the first producer ever inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame. A statement from the Harvey family called her "the creative and administrative heartbeat behind the number-one-rated 'Paul Harvey News and Comment,' which reaches tens of millions of listeners."

ABC Radio Networks President Jim Robinson released this statement: "Angel Harvey's passing is a loss for all of us in radio. For decades she served as a producer, writer and the inspiring force behind 'Paul Harvey News and Comment.' Angel was frequently referred to as 'The First Lady of Radio,' and countless charities benefited from her devotion to philanthropic efforts. She was a friend to all who knew her and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul, Paul Jr., and the entire Harvey family."

American Women in Radio and Television President Maria Brennan said, "As the influential force behind 'Paul Harvey News and Comment,' Ms. Harvey simultaneously worked diligently to give back to her community and many philanthropic endeavors. On behalf of all AWRT members, Angel Harvey will never be forgotten and will be greatly celebrated. Our thoughts go out to her family."

The Harveys had been married for 68 years. All of us at Radio Ink offer our condolences to the Harvey family.
