Lauren Scafidi is a bilingual journalist who joined 9&10 News in 2017 as a reporter, and began co-anchoring Michigan This Morning in 2018.

Her stories have brought her as far north as Sault Ste. Marie all the way to Washington, D.C. for both the heartbreaking and heartwarming stories in our communities and beyond. Lauren has earned a Michigan Association of Broadcasters Broadcast Excellence Award for Best Feature Story, and a Michigan Association of Broadcasters Merit Award for News Reporter.

Now, Lauren loves kick-starting your morning Monday through Friday 4:30 – 9 a.m. with Northern Michigan’s News Leader, and exploring different restaurants each week for her segment Inside The Kitchen With Lauren Scafidi.

When she’s not at the anchor desk or in the field, Lauren is out on a run, practicing yoga, or trying to become a better golfer. The key word there is trying.

Lauren hails from the suburbs of Chicago. She graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she served as president of the Society of Professional Journalists.
