Apparently, as a kid Linda faced several self-esteem issues, and in order to overcome them she turned to sports. While attending Newfield High School, she discovered her passion for ice hockey, and even played against boys serving as a goalie. Later, Linda Cohn enrolled at the State University of New York at Oswego from which she graduated in 1981 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in communications. She continued to play hockey for the university’s women’s ice hockey team, and for her efforts and contribution, in 2006 she was inducted into Oswego State athletics hall of fame.
Her first professional engagement came right after her graduation in 1981, when she began serving as a sports anchor for the New York-based radio station WALK-AM where she stayed ‘til 1984. The next three years she spent working for several others radio stations within the New York City area, of which the most notable was WFAN. These engagements provided the basis for Linda Cohn’s net worth.
In 1987, Linda had her name written into the history of sportscasting as the first woman full-time, national radio network sports anchor. Between 1987 and 1988, she hosted ABC’s WABC Talk Radio, then in 1988 she debuted on the small screens nationwide as an anchor of SportsChannel America. In the early 1990s, Linda Cohn spent some time working for the KIRO-TV in Seattle, Washington, and it’s certain that all these engagements provided considerable experience for Linda Cohn as well as contributing to her overall net worth.

Apart from her professional engagements as a sports anchor, Linda Cohn is also an acclaimed author. In 2008, she published her self-authored memoirs, entitled “Cohn-Head: A No-Holds-Barred Account of Breaking Into the Boys’ Club”.
