Lindsay Oliver is the weekend morning anchor and a reporter for Spectrum News 1 in Ohio.
Before joining Spectrum, Lindsay was an anchor with WITN-TV in Greenville, N.C. There she covered the massive devastation left from the remnants of Hurricane Matthew, reported live from campaign stops of the presidential candidates in the 2016 election, and investigated major understaffing in the state’s prison system following the deaths of five prison employees.
She began her career with Fox News Channel in New York. From there, she went to West Virginia as a bureau reporter for WVVA-TV, before being quickly promoted to the weekend anchor position.
This Cleveland native is excited to return to her home state to bring you stories that matter. Lindsay has wanted to be a journalist for as long as she can remember. She graduated summa cum laude from Mentor High School, before matriculating to the University of Miami in Florida.
Her mother worked for a TV station in Cleveland for 36 years and let’s just say Take Your Daughter to Work Day left quite the imprint on the aspiring anchor and reporter.
Lindsay has hosted three Children’s Miracle Network Telethons, a cause that is near and dear to her. Her mother—who had her own career in television in Cleveland—serves as an inspiration professionally, and personally, as a survivor of breast cancer.
One of Lindsay's biggest passions is fostering animals, from puppies and kittens to senior animals with medical needs.
