Lynne Russell, Canadian Realtor

By Alissa Krinsky 

Former CNN HN anchor Lynne Russell, who now lives in Toronto, has become a real estate agent. “I really love it,” she tells Canada’s National Post.

The move to Toronto, Russell explains, was for her husband’s job, as head of the Canadian-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Until recently, Russell was doing work for the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC), but “it didn’t work out”.

Russell, who has two black belts in Choi Kwang Do, was also asked by reporter Rob Roberts if she could “throw down” CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “Wolf is a friend,” she answered. “I don’t think I’d ever have to do that.”
