Veteran TV reporter and anchor Lauren Morrison has joined the staff of the national TV series MotorWeek.  In her new role with the 35-season series, Morrison will serve as feature reporter and producer for the show’s consumer-oriented “FYI” segments. 

As part of the MotorWeek production staff, Morrison will cover trends in the automotive industry that directly affect car ownership such as evolving automotive safety technology and the integration of personal digital devices into routine car operation.  On a lighter note, she will also be free to explore the backroads of America’s automotive love affair to seek out special destinations that no car enthusiast should miss. Her MotorWeek “FYIsegments will continue to follow a fun- and fact-filled format that has both entertained and enlightened viewers for decades.

“I’m excited to start this new adventure, but, let me tell you, my dad and brother sure are jealous! I can finally put all those hours in the garage and at the track with them to good use,” says Morrison.

Prior to joining MotorWeek, Morrison was a morning reporter and fill-in anchor at WAFF, the NBC affiliate in Huntsville, AL.  Before her tenure with WAFF, Morrison was an evening news anchor at WABI, the CBS affiliate in Bangor, ME.  Originally from Florida, Morrison is an alumna of Florida State University in Tallahassee where she earned her bachelor's degree in media and communications studies.

 “We are delighted that Lauren has joined the staff of MotorWeek,” says show host John Davis.  “Her experience in producing and reporting a wide variety of timely stories, mixed with a profound affection for all things cars, makes her a perfect fit with our audience,” he adds.
