Her work on homeless veterans was recognized with an Edward R Murrow Regional Award. She has also received awards from the Society of Professional Journalists, the Michigan Association of Broadcasters and the Associated Press.
Lange came to FOX 2 from WEYI-TV in Flint, Michigan, where she worked as a reporter/anchor from 1996 until 1998. Before joining WEYI, Lange was a news promotions producer and an associate news producer at WTVJ in Miami, Florida.
Lange graduated cum laude with honors from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, where she majored in Broadcast Journalism and Spanish. In 2008 she received her Master's degree in Social Justice from Marygrove College in Detroit.
