ABOUT LYNN HOFFMAN

  Lynn Hoffman was born and raised in Boston, Massachusetts. She knew she wanted to be in show business ever since she performed in the play, Peter Pan while in elementary school. "When I got up there on stage and made all those people smile, I felt like I was home." Lynn starred in many stage productions and eagerly pursued acting, singing, dancing and playing many musical instruments during her early schooling years. At 19, she recorded her first radio commercial for her father's office furniture business.

Graduating with a degree in Communications from The New England Institute of Art in 1992, she quickly started making a living with her voice. Lynn landed her first professional on-air broadcasting position in 1993 with Metro Networks as a traffic/news reporter for various Boston radio stations.
