Lauren Scala is an Emmy Award winning television host, reporter and producer. 

Her smart, fun and down to earth approach to the job has landed her gigs hosting everything from NBC’s national travel show, “1st Look," to Beat Bobby Flay on Food Network. She has also made multiple appearances on The Kelly Clarkson Show and has served as an entertainment correspondent for Epix News.

Lauren has been a mainstay on NBC's flagship station in New York City for 15+ years, where she has clocked countless hours of live TV.  For over a decade, she was an integral part of NBC New York's morning news team as the traffic anchor on "Today in NY,” while also reporting for the weekday lifestyle show “New York Live,” where she still appears regularly covering a variety of beats, but mainly the city’s vibrant restaurant scene.

An intrepid traveler, known for her solo adventures to the far ends of the globe, she has visited over 40 countries. A true adventurer at heart, nothing brings her more joy than sharing the stories from her travels around the world.
In her free time, she volunteers with the sea turtle rescue program at the NY Marine Rescue Center and is a valiant supporter of conservation efforts for both wildlife and the planet. She has been awarded several Emmy nominations for her stories on the environment and conservation.
