Laurie StriblingNews Anchor/Reporter
Laurie joined the Eyewitness News team in August 2012. Two years earlier, she started her career as an Anchor/Reporter for KSAX-TV in Alexandria, Minnesota. Laurie quickly fell in love with the region and the news she was able to cover.

"I enjoyed giving people in smaller communities a voice," Laurie said. "I was able to tell great stories that affected people who sometimes get ignored by bigger media outlets."

While covering news in west-central Minnesota, Laurie also fell in love with the way of life. She found time to learn to fish, hunt and ride a snowmobile.

"I caught the fishing fever, not to mention a 27-inch walleye," Laurie said. "I love the outdoors and the different activities that come with each season. I can't wait to hook a lunker out on Lake Superior."

This California girl loves to explore the Northland, or as some say, the "San Francisco of the Midwest".

Laurie is originally from San Jose, Calif. and graduated from San Diego State University where she majored in Journalism. She had her first internship at KUSI-TV in San Diego, but really got her feet wet in the newsroom while interning at KBAK-TV in Bakersfield, Calif.

Laurie is excited to be covering news in the Northland, and during her time off, she doesn't mind taking in the beautiful view of the lake!
