She was born in Jamaica in 1975 and was best known for her work at the Spectrum News cable station NY1.

“Ruschell was such a special person to so many people in that newsroom,” said Grace Rauh, a former NY1 political reporter. “She was really this larger-than-life person, and had such a huge heart.”

“I think of her as the quintessential NY1 reporter,” Rauh said, describing Boone as an “incredibly versatile” journalist who turned parade reporting into an “art form.”
