Lauren Dorsett is ABC 27 anchor and health reporter, covering issues concerning local Tallahassee, Florida, citizens in addition to anchoring ABC 27 News at Noon and News at Five on weekdays.
Lauren Phinney-Dorsett is married to Jay Dorsett, a sales manager at Haverty’s Furniture in Tallahassee.
She grew up in Simi Valley, CA, a suburb of Los Angeles. Not ready to leave the west coast, she stayed and attended Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles where she graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Television Production with an emphasis in Journalism. It was at LMU that she got her start anchoring the university news magazine show, Access LMU.
Eager for more experience, Lauren Dorsett left Los Angeles to become a reporter for KCFW in Kalispell, Montana.
Her experience there landed her an anchor/producer position for Montana Today at KECI in Missoula, Montana, where she received the E.B. Craney Award for the state’s top female broadcaster in 2005.
Later that year she joined ABC 27 as an anchor/reporter for News at 6 and News at 11 shows.
One of ABC 27’s commitments is to enable our communities to prosper by providing them with news, information, and services that impact their lives.
Lauren Dorsett is contributing to that mission through her health segments. She has been active in the Tallahassee community by participating as the emcee for the Heart Walk 2005 and events hosted by the local divisions of the American Heart Association.
Lauren Dorsett and her husband Jay currently live in Tallahassee and enjoy fishing.
