Lauren Kummer joined the FOX 17 News team in September 2020.

She was born and raised in LaSalle, Ontario, Canada and comes from a family of six.

It was in high school she became interested in news and telling stories. She anchored the morning announcements where she found a passion for informing her peers of current events, important information and other student’s accomplishments.

From there, she attended Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Myers, FL where she was a part of Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity. Lauren graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and a minor in French. She also studied abroad in Paris and traveled around Europe while she was there.

Before coming to FOX 17 News, Lauren worked in central Nebraska as a Weekend Anchor & News Reporter for NTV News & KFXL FOX Nebraska. There she discovered a liking to Nebraska football and grew to enjoy telling agriculture stories.

While she’s not at work, you can find Lauren exploring “her backyard” - trying new foods, activities and visiting places around west Michigan. She loves wine, boating, musicals, county music & traveling.
