Carol Lin returns to the air, with a sad story

Carol_lin_34_2008 Carol Lin, the first anchor to go on the air with the news that an airliner had crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, has been missing in action for about 18 months now since parting ways with CNN. She resurfaces Tuesday on NPR's noon-hour Day To Day show with a personal report: an account of reconciliation in her sometimes-troubled relationship with her mother, who is battling cancer. It is, unfortunately, a subject on which Lin has some expertise. Her husband, CNN producer Will Robinson, died of the disease in 2003, just six weeks after their daughter Chloe was born.

Hello Mrs. Lin,

Just wanted you to know how much I miss you on CNN and that I admire you. I think you are very intelligent and insightful. Please come back to broadcast news when you can!!

Ms Lin:
Welcome to the SRI community. It was nice to meet you today, albeit it was a brief and in the hallway.
With your experiences, personal and professional, I am sure you will be successful here.
