Lindsey Ward - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Lindsey Ward

You often hear there's no place like home. After working and going to school in Central Virginia for over five years, Lindsey's made her way back home to the mountains.

Lindsey graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Broadcast Journalism. She began her television career at NBC 12 in Richmond, starting out as a tape editor eventually working her way up to the assignment desk.

Although she enjoyed her time in Richmond as a Ram, she packed up and headed a little west to Cavalier Country to begin reporting at Charlottesville's CBS19 / ABC16 / FOX27. She wore many hats at the Newsplex as a reporter, photographer, producer and anchor. She also worked as the Arena Host for University of Virginia Women's Basketball.

Lindsey is very excited to be back and looks forward to telling your stories. If you have ideas email her.
