Lauren Clark joined the FOX 10 News team as a reporter in Fall of 2022.
She couldn’t be more thrilled to come back home! Lauren is a proud third-generation Arizonian who graduated from Desert Ridge High School and ASU. She’s convinced that there isn’t any place quite as special as the Valley, growing up with fond memories floating the Salt River, hiking the Superstition Springs Mountains, watching gorgeous desert sunsets, and cheering passionately for Phoenix sports teams (especially the Sun Devils and Suns)!
Her love for news has deep roots. When she was in 3rd grade, a teacher once commented on how she would make a good news anchor one day, and the dream never stopped from there! After interning at the New York Business Journal, FOX 5 in Washington D.C. and WTOP, she landed her first on-air job in beautiful Boise, Idaho. There she covered wildfires, interviewed a man exonerated from death row by DNA evidence, and did an investigative piece that revealed no state law requires the preservation of homicide evidence . But her favorite story was absolutely flying in an F-16, pulling thrilling 7 G’s!
In 2019, Lauren moved to KSNV in Las Vegas, covering the trifecta of celebrities, crime, and casinos. Highlights of that time include interviewing pop icon Cher, billionaire Sir. Richard Branson, and country singer Keith Urban. She also extensively covered the tourism and hospitality industry struggling and recovering post-pandemic, and provided around-the-clock coverage on the death of a local investigative reporter allegedly killed by a public official. Lauren also got the opportunity to cover the 2022 Super Bowl in LA, and won an Emmy for team coverage of the 2020 Democratic Debates. While in Sin City, she also did a mix of reporting, anchoring, and weather.
When she’s not chasing down a story, Lauren loves spending time with her family, watching sports, hiking, doing hot yoga, or loving on her precious chocolate lab Watson, and adorable beagle Sherlock. She’s also training for her first marathon!
She is honored to be reporting in her hometown so if you have a story idea or tip, please reach out!
