Biographical NoteReturn to Top

Jean Walkinshaw graduated from Stanford University in 1960. She taught school for three years, and in 1963, started her TV career. At KING TV, she interviewed on-camera for the “Telescope” show, and then for five years, produced a weekly series, Face to Face hosted by Roberta Byrd.

In 1970, Walkinshaw moved to KCTS, where she produced documentaries for both national and local broadcast. Most of her work has featured people and places in the Northwest. She has also produced documentaries in Russia, Ghana, West Africa and Japan. Many of her programs have been aired nationally by PBS and by such varied groups as NHK in Japan, Super Channel in Europe, British Airways, and Armed Forces Television Services.

Her many awards include eight Northwest Regional Emmies; John F. Kennedy Journalism Award; Ohio State Award; National Press Women Award; New York, Chicago, and American Festival Awards; and four Best of the West Awards. In 1992, she was inducted into the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Silver Circle for 25 years of significant contribution to the television industry and community.
