CBS4 Weather Anchor Lauren Whitney loves the excitement of Colorado weather. She says the unique weather patterns and rapidly changing conditions keeps her on her toes.
She joined the CBS4 morning news team in November of 2011. Before her start in Denver, Lauren was the morning Weather Anchor in Grand Junction at KKCO-TV (NBC).
Her appreciation and passion for weather started early in life, when she was a young girl living in Minnesota. She later moved to Phoenix and calls the city home. She graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University where she also minored in Political Science.
Lauren is an avid sports fan and had a fun first job working for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
She was the “Game Host” roving through the stands interviewing fans and announcing contests on the JumboTron at Chase Field. Lauren is not just an Arizona sports fan but since her move to Colorado has enjoyed cheering on our home teams.
Being a part of the community she lives in is very important to Lauren. She has been a coach for the Girls on the Run program and found that coaching young girls is very challenging and rewarding.
Lauren enjoys cooking and baking and is always on the hunt for new recipes and cooking tips.
