Lauren Scafidi joined 9&10 News in 2017 as a reporter, and began co-anchoring Michigan This Morning in October 2018.
Her stories have brought her as far north as Sault Ste. Marie, as far south as Mount Pleasant, and everywhere in between. She has covered both the heartbreaking and heartwarming stories in our communities. Lauren has earned a Michigan Association of Broadcasters Broadcast Excellence Award for Best Feature Story, and a Michigan Association of Broadcasters Merit Award for Best Reporter.
Now, Lauren loves kick-starting your morning Monday through Friday 4:30 – 9 a.m. with Northern Michigan’s News Leader, and traveling to different restaurants each week for her segment Inside The Kitchen With Lauren Scafidi.
When she’s not at the anchor desk or in the field, Lauren is out on a run, practicing yoga, or trying to become a better golfer. Key word, trying.
Lauren hails from the suburbs of Chicago, and graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where she served as president of the Society of Professional Journalists.
