Lauren McCally

Lauren McCally joined WBKO in June of 2021 after graduating from the University of Kentucky with a Broadcast Journalism degree and a double minor in Anthropology and Environmental Sustainability and Studies. She is originally from Houston, TX, but went to UK because her family is from Lexington.

Lauren decided to pursue Journalism in college during her Junior Year of High school after taking an elective in video production and creation. During her time at UK, she covered the small town of Midway, KY where she kept citizens informed of what was going on in their community, made the Omicron Delta Kappa honor society, in her Junior year, and was on the Dean's List in the fall of her Freshman year.

Lauren also has a background in theater and dance, where she was a ballerina for 12 years before switching to the tech side and working in several roles behind the scenes.

When she is not working, Lauren is spending time with family and friends or bartending events around Lexington.
