A longtime Boston-area radio reporter has died.
WBZ-AM announced Wednesday that Lana Jones "died suddenly this morning at UMass Medical Center in Worcester."
Lana’s husband, Steve Jones-D’Agostino, in a posting on Facebook, said Lana collapsed in their home Wednesday morning and was rushed to UMass Medical Center. On the way there, she suffered two heart attacks. Steve says the medical team tried for more than an hour to administer CPR to no avail.
Lana had worked at WBZ since 1991 and had been a part of the area’s radio news scene since 1981. Everyone who worked with or alongside Lana knew she was the consummate professional.
During her tenure, Lana covered many of the city's biggest news events including the Boston Marathon bombing, the Roman Catholic priest abuse scandal, and the death of John F. Kennedy Jr.
Lana Jones was 62.
