Marlene Sanders Dies: Groundbreaking Journalist Was 84

Marlene Sanders, one of TV’s first female journalists and mother of CNN legal analyst and New Yorker staff writer, Jeffrey Toobin, died Tuesday from cancer. She was 84.

Toobin announced his mother’s death on his Facebook page.

“Marlene Sanders, my mother, died today. A pioneering television journalist – the first network newswoman to report from Vietnam, among many other firsts – she informed and inspired a generation. Above all, though, she was a great Mom,” Toobin wrote Sunday.

Early in her career Sanders worked for ABC News, where in 1964, she became the first woman to anchor a prime time network newscast when she filled in for Ron Cochran, who had lost his voice that night, according to USA Today.

She became vice president of ABC’s news division in 1976. She moved to CBS News in 1978 as a documentary correspondent and producer, where she remained until 1987.

Some of you and I, know Marlene as the voice of HBO's "Autopsy Files."
