Anchor Lauren Leslie joined WEVV in the summer of 2015 as a reporter. She worked as an investigative journalist for two years before becoming an evening anchor. Lauren now wakes up the tristate as a morning anchor Monday through Friday on CBS44 & FOX44.
Homegrown, Lauren was born in Evansville and grew up in Newburgh attending Castle schools from kindergarten through graduation. Go Knights!
Lauren’s love for broadcast started at a young age growing up watching anchors like Katie Couric and Diane Sawyer.
After graduating from Castle in 2008, Lauren majored in Radio Television at the University of Southern Indiana and minored in criminal justice studies. A passion for covering the courts led her to report on several high-profile criminal trials throughout her career.
Outside of work Lauren enjoys hitting the links or solving a good crossword puzzle. She says you can never go wrong with a cup of coffee — and sorry dog people, Lauren’s definitely a cat person and loves Maine Coons.
