Jeanne Parr, a Former CBS Correspondent, Dies at 94


Parr began her broadcasting career at WKOW, a local radio and television station in her hometown of Madison, Wis., before moving to New Haven, Conn., to work in weather reporting. After one of her “blooper” broadcasts caught the attention of the producers from the 1950s game show “What’s My Line,” Parr appeared as a contestant and later a panelist on the series. She then caught the eye of a CBS producer who is credited for bringing her to New York, where she embarked on a career as a weathergirl on the “Jim Jensen Show” in 1961. She went on to become a full-fledged news correspondent. Parr is survived by her three sons, Charles James Noth, Michael Parr Noth and actor Chris Noth; two grandchildren; and one great grandchild.
