Sports Multimedia Journalist
Lauren Cash is a sports reporter/multimedia journalist and fill-in sports anchor at Local 8 News.
She landed her first job at WYMT, WVLT's sister station in Hazard, Kentucky. During her time in eastern Kentucky, she had the opportunity to cover University of Kentucky athletics, local colleges, and high school sports. Lauren spent three years covering sports in the mountains and loved shooting high school football on Friday nights when all the towns would shut down to watch their team play.
Even though she spent time covering UK, Lauren is originally from Louisville, Kentucky (Go Cards!). As a kid, Lauren grew up watching and playing sports. Watching Suzy Kolber report on the NFL influenced Lauren at a young age to pursue a career in sports. That dream began in 2012 when she graduated from Western Kentucky University with a degree in Broadcast Communication.
Sports have a way of uniting people and because of that, Lauren considers it a privilege to capture the raw emotion that pours from players, coaches and fans.
Lauren is thrilled to cover the University of Tennessee, as well as high schools in East Tennessee.
