After spending seven years in television news around the country, Lauren finally made it back to New York in 1999. She joined Eyewitness News in March of 2000. She grew up in New York City and is thrilled to be covering the place she knows and loves.
Lauren started her career in journalism as a teenager writing for the "Main Street Wire," the newspaper on Roosevelt Island. She graduated from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and soon after landed her first television job in Akron, Ohio. From there she headed south to Little Rock, Arkansas where she covered Whitewater and anchored the Saturday morning news.
Then it was on to Minneapolis where Lauren anchored a daily morning news show and was nominated for an Emmy for her coverage of the St. Peter Tornado. But the frequent flights home to New York weren't enough. "Working for WABC-TV has been a dream come true. This is the station I grew up watching. I now work with some of the best and brightest in the business," she says.
Lauren currently reports and fills in on the anchor desk. She lives in Manhattan, enjoys spending time with her dog Coco, eating out and taking in the amazing wealth of culture the city has to offer.
