Lauren McMillen
Weekend Reporter

Lauren joined the 5 News team as a weekend reporter in February of 2014.
She is currently a student at West Virginia University, majoring in both Broadcast Journalism and International Studies. During her time in college, she has had the opportunity to work for the school’s University Relations Video Department and is a member of the school’s RTDNA chapter. 
Lauren followed her passion for reporting early on in life. She interned right here at WDTV while she was in high school. This is where she got her first taste of the exciting life of being a reporter, and knew that she wanted to pursue this as a career. She has also been awarded with the Al Neuharth Free Spirit Journalism Award. 
Lauren is a local girl at heart. She grew up in Shinnston, WV and couldn’t be happier to be covering the news of her hometown! 
When she’s not out chasing a story, Lauren enjoys running, going to the gym, traveling, driving her Beetle Bug, and spending time with family and friends. 
If you see her around town, be sure to stop and say hello. Also, if you have any story ideas or feedback, please feel free to send them her way at lmcmillen@wdtv.com
