Lauren Klenda

Morning and Noon anchor

Lauren comes to NewsChannel 5 as our Morning and Noon anchor.

Lauren recently moved to Grand Junction from Phoenix, AZ where she was a "one-man-band" reporter for KAET. During her time in Phoenix, Lauren also attended and graduated from The Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Arizona State University with a degree in Journalism, specializing in Broadcast. 

Lauren has worked at multiple print publications in Arizona, but found her passion in broadcast news.

Lauren loves to move to new places, but as a Colorado native, could not resist the chance to come back to her home state. She is a true Coloradan at heart, but loves to travel and has lived in France twice; she is a fluent French speaker and received a dual degree in French. 

She is also an Alpha Chi Omega alum and has a passion for raising awareness on domestic violence.

Now, she looks forward to becoming a part of the community here on the Western Slope, and couldn't be more excited to wake up with you in the mornings.
