“Lana died suddenly this morning at UMass Medical Center in Worcester,” the station said in a statement.
“Lana was the consummate professional who could take a hundred page Supreme Court Decision and boil it down into a concise report for our listeners,” said Bill Flaherty, WBZ’s Program Director. “She knew everyone and everything. She will be greatly missed.”
Jones joined WBZ in 1991 as a news writer, editor and fill-in anchor and reporter. She has been part of the station’s award-winning coverage of the Boston Marathon bombings, the Whitey Bulger trial, the Aaron Hernandez case, the Priest sex abuse scandal, the crash of John F. Kennedy Jr.’s plane and the Worcester warehouse fire.
