Lauren Whitney
Position: Meteorologist

CBS4 Meteorologist Lauren Whitney loves the excitement of Colorado weather and the challenge of tracking its unique weather patterns and rapidly changing conditions. 

Lauren is originally from Minnesota and later moved to Phoenix, the city she calls home. She has a B.A. degree in Broadcast Journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University, where she minored in Political Science, and a B.S. degree in Geosciences with a concentration in Broadcast and Operational Meteorology from Mississippi State University.

Lauren is an avid sports fan and had a unique first job working for the Arizona Diamondbacks where she was the “Game Host” roving through the stands and announcing contests on the Jumbotron at Chase Field. Although she’s a Broncos fan, she also bleeds purple for the Minnesota Vikings.
