Kelly Lange (born Dorothy Scafard; December 14, 1937) is an American journalist, most notable for being the first woman to be a nightly news anchor in Los Angeles. Lange, a Shakespeare major in college, is a longtime news anchor in Los Angeles, a veteran radio and TV news reporter, NBC talk show host, former Tournament of Roses parade co-host, and more recently a best-selling mystery author. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts and went to school there. One day in 1967, Lange, a model at the time, got into a line at a Buena Park shopping mall, because it appeared 'they were giving something away.' The something they were giving away turned out to be applications for two positions as 'Ladybirds' on KABC (790) radio.
