Lauren Hensley

WILKES-BARRE, PA -  Lauren Hensley is thrilled to be in her home state!  She joined the Eyewitness News Team as the morning reporter and weekend morning anchor in the fall of 2016.  

Lauren most recently worked at fellow NBC affiliate WJAC in Johnstown-Altoona, where she worked as a multimedia journalist and fill-in anchor in the Blair County bureau. During her time there, she covered the fallout from the grand jury investigation into the Catholic Diocese of Altoona–Johnstown.  Lauren's career began in the mountain state where she served as a reporter and fill-in anchor at WVNS in Beckley WV.  

A Pennsylvania native, Lauren was born and raised in Nazareth, the birthplace of the Martin Guitar and race car driver Mario Andretti. Lauren knew at a young age she wanted to be a journalist. Lauren earned a Bachelor's and Master's degree from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. During her academic career she worked on two award-winning documentaries and also studied Spanish in Barcelona, Spain.

When Lauren isn't covering the news, she enjoys traveling (especially overseas), dancing, working out, reading, hiking the beautiful mountains of NEPA and spending time with her nieces and nephews.  

If you see Lauren out and about please say 'hello'! If you have a news story you can email her, lhensley@pahomepage.com or follow her on Twitter or Facebook. (She loves to use Facebook Live!)
 
Lauren looks forward to working in Northeastern and Central Pennsylvania and becoming apart of such a tight-knit community.
