With more than 40 years behind the anchor desk at both WUSA and WJLA in Washington and numerous awards and accolades including seven local Emmys, Bunyan has cemented her place in broadcast history as a trailblazer and a legend in the industry.

A founder of the National Association of Black Journalists and the International Women's Media Foundation, she is also a member of the Order of Orange-Nassau, a Dutch chivalric honor, for her educational efforts on behalf of students in the United States and her native Aruba, a Dutch colony in the Caribbean.
