Peg Lynch was on TV around the same time as Lucille Ball. But despite being one of the early pioneers of women creating, writing, and starring in TV sitcoms, Lynch just may be just the most famous woman in television history you’ve never heard of. An exhibit at the University of Oregon tells her story and we hear about her — and other unsung women in broadcast history — from University of Oregon professor Carol Stabile and Cynthia Bemis Abrams, host of the “Advanced TV Herstory” podcast.
