S2 Episode 15: EmPOWERing Women featuring Lynn Scornavacca

I first met Lynn Scornavacca when I was a production assistant. I didn’t know much about anything back then. But I marveled at her skills and the way she stood up to the boys in television. As I sit back and think about the women who impacted me in my professional career, there’s no way I could leave Lynn out.

Lynn began her professional career at Snow Sound in Hartford, Connecticut where she began honing her skills as an audio engineer.  She moved to Boston in the early 80s where she began working in sports broadcasting. In 1981 – there were no other women mixing audio. She was the first A1 working in sports in the Northeast. 

Fast forward to where we met at WGBH-TV. There, she shifted her focus to field audio, working with two wonderful people who also impacted my life: Kathy Gleason and Howard Powell. 

From Say Brother to Antiques Roadshow, to Evening At The Pops, and so much more, Lynn stood out as a true professional and skilled production engineer.  

Finally, in 2004 – Lynn took another bold step and launched her own company, Silver Lake Productions, Inc. where she and her staff specialize in stories for nonprofits. 

Lynn is a woman I not only looked up to, but still call for advice to this day.
