Overview

As a reporter for more than 40 years, most of them on national television, Lynn Sherr has brought clarity and insight to many of the compelling news events of our day. In Outside the Box, this widely respected journalist lets us in on what she’s seen "inside the box" as she steps outside for a reality check.

Sherr tells how television journalism has changed over the years and explores the state of TV news today. When she first began in the industry, newspaper editors bluntly told her, "We don't hire girls," but Lynn persevered, both covering and experiencing the emergence of modern feminism. From growing up in Philadelphia, to suddenly becoming a step mom, to the heartbreak of her husband’s death followed by her own battle with colon cancer, her personal story mixes with accounts of the political and cultural upheavals she has covered to make Outside the Box a social history of our time.
