Known In The '70s For: Playing Jennifer Marlowe on the TV show WKRP in Cincinnati

Anderson was judged suitable to play the breathy, pneumatic secretary on WKRP when the show's creator saw a picture of her in a bikini. He described her as having "a body like Jayne Mansfield and the overall sex appeal of Marilyn Monroe." In a way, the babe racket in the late '70s was a giant hair contest, in which sex symbols wore ever larger and more elaborate piles of curls and waves—and Loni played second fiddlehead to no one.
