Lauren anchors News 13 Saturday and Sunday Morning at 8 AM.  She reports during the week for News 13 at 6.

She joined the WBTW team in January 2012 as a Content Producer.  She produced “Fox Morning News” and appeared on-air for News 13 This Morning.  After filling in for positions when needed, she became a Digital Journalist in July 2012, and reported for News 13 This Morning. 

In March of 2013, Lauren became the weekend morning anchor.

Lauren graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of South Carolina in December 2011 with a degree in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Political Science.  She’s a member of Phi Beta Kappa and was awarded the “Outstanding Senior Award for Reporting” her final semester at USC. 

While in college, Lauren interned at WLTX (CBS) in Columbia and WSOC (ABC) in Charlotte, NC.  She also completed two stories for ESPNU.  One, on South Carolina’s back-to-back National Championship winning baseball team, ran nation-wide.  

Lauren is from Anderson, SC and has lived in the state almost her entire life.  She lived in Charleston and Dallas, Texas previously.  She’s a self-proclaimed beach bum, but is quick to note any body of water is where she loves to spend her free time.  While she’s not working or at the beach, you can find her at Williams-Brice cheering on the Gamecocks, laughing with friends and family, and enjoying everything she loves about the South. 

Feel free to contact Lauren on Facebook, Twitter, or via email if you have any story ideas.  She’s excited to meet the entire community!
