Lara Bryn is an Edward R. Murrow and two-time Emmy Award-winning anchor and reporter. She joined the CBS 6 News Team as morning show anchor in June 2022. Before that, she spent four years working in sunny Florida, covering breaking news, in-depth health stories, space launches and as many stories at the beach, Disney World and Universal Studios as she could find. Her continuing coverage of the George Floyd rallies in downtown Orlando earned Lara her second Emmy. She also covered morning show traffic and anchored every newscast at the station.
Before that, Lara spent three-and-a-half years in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. She worked her way up from the Capitol beat reporter to weekend anchor and primary anchor. While in Harrisburg, Lara had the opportunity of a lifetime: to do a story about her father, who was suffering from early on-set Alzheimer’s Disease. Focused on research for a cure and featuring a visit to her father’s assisted living facility, the story earned Lara numerous awards, including her first regional Emmy and Edward R. Murrow Award. She also won a national Society of Professional Journalists Award, which she accepted in Washington, D.C.
After her father’s death, Lara began focusing more on wellness and health reporting. She has since become a 500-hour certified yoga teacher and is currently studying to get a health coaching certification. She ran the New York City Marathon in 2017, raising money for an Alzheimer’s charity in New York City and is very involved with the Alzheimer’s Association.
Lara has also reported in Scranton, Pennsylvania and Elmira, New York. She is a proud graduate of Syracuse University. Originally from New Jersey, she is happy to return to the Northeast with her husband, daughter and dog!
