She is best known for her role as receptionist Jennifer Marlowe on WKRP in Cincinnati.
Anderson was married to Bruce Hasselberg from 1964â??1966, Ross Bickell from 1973â??1981, actor (and one-time co-star) Burt Reynolds from 1988â??1993, and she has been married to musician Bob Flick since 2008.

Anderson had small roles on such shows as S.W.A.T., Police Woman, Barnaby Jones, and Three's Company before securing the role of Jennifer on WKRP in Cincinnati.

She paired up with Wonder Woman star Lynda Carter in the series Partners in Crime, which did not meet with much sucess. She also starred in the short-lived series Easy Street (1986) as a Law Vegas showgirl who inherits a bunch of money.

Her father was originally going to name her "Leiloni," but then realized to his horror that when she got to her teen years it was liable to be twisted into "Lay Loni."
