Lauren Petrowski has been giving you the EDGE on FOX 7 NEWS as a reporter since October of 2007. The Phoenix, AZ, native attended the University of Texas where she majored in Broadcast Journalism.
Before landing the job at FOX 7, Lauren was a reporter and anchor at the CBS affiliate in Corpus Christi, TX. The transition from Corpus to Austin was an easy one since Lauren interned at FOX 7 filing stories as the UT Reporter.
Lauren is so happy to be living and working in Austin. Her favorite part about being a reporter is meeting new people and getting the chance to tell their stories. She's also had a blast covering auditions for American Idol and The X Factor. In 2012, Lauren was named "Best TV Personality" by the Austin Alliance for Women in Media.
In her spare time, Lauren and her husband love to explore Austin's growing food scene and travel when they have the chance. She is slowly learning to speak French and hopes to be able to use her language skills in France one day. Lauren is involved with Big Brothers, Big Sisters, and she loves to go bowling and see movies with her little sister. She's also a TV fanatic and loves live music.
