Her career spans a multitude of gigs across the US and UK, including roles as a national afternoon host for Westwood One (adult contemporary formats), midday host of K-LITE 101.7, as host of ABC Radio’s syndicated Classic R & B format. Lynn’s broadcasting career extends into television which includes anchoring the weekend news for TXCN (Texas Cable News), a Belo-owned network airing in Dallas, Austin, Houston and San Antonio. During her career, Briggs made her debut as a program director (Stevie Wonder owned KJLH Radio-Los Angeles), music director, promotions director, account executive, voiceover actor, principal with TMG Marketing and public relations for the National Football League.
As student advisor and executive producer at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Briggs created the university’s inaugural morning show “The Morning Rebellion” and was instrumental in media placement for several UNLV graduates. Her multiple positions at these organizations have helped each achieve a next level of growth.
