Lauren Johnson joined the FOX 29 News team in the summer of 2014. She anchors the weekend editions of "Good Day Philadelphia" and reports during the week.
Prior to joining FOX 29, Lauren was a weekend anchor for "Good Day Orlando" on WOFL-FOX 35, the FOX O&O in Orlando, Fla. Lauren started her TV career at Central Florida News 13 in 2003. In her role as reporter, she jumped behind the wheel and the camera to explore and capture popular attractions around the state in a franchise called "Florida on a Tankful." Four years later, Lauren traded the fun in the sun for the blues and BBQ and headed to Memphis, Tenn., as the health reporter. While in Tennessee, she worked closely with local hospitals to tell remarkable stories in healthcare. Several of her stories were nominated for Emmy awards. Shortly thereafter, Lauren made the transition to the anchor desk and co-anchored Good Morning Memphis.
Lauren was born and raised in Atlanta before heading to Greenville, S.C., for college at Furman University. While studying for her Communication Studies degree, she was also hitting the track, doing laps and competing as a member of the women's track and field team. To learn more about the television industry, she completed internships in several top markets including Atlanta, Greenville, S.C., and New York. The most memorable of those was working under Diane Sawyer during her days on Good Morning America.
In her spare time, Lauren enjoys traveling, decorating, catching up on her sleep, and spending time with friends and family, especially her identical twin nieces.
