Laurel Lee

Orlando's Morning News Producer

Laurel Lee is the producer of Orlando's Morning News, Orlando's News at Noon and produces various Ask the Expert shows on the weekend.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, she bleeds black and gold and is a huge Steeler and Penguins fan (though, let's not talk about the Pirates.) Lured by the chance to escape ice and the dream of learning sound production, Laurel moved to Orlando to attend college. In 2012, she graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Radio and Television Production and a job at News 96.5.

Laurel Lee

Falling into radio was a bit of a happy accident, but she couldn't be more elated about it. A few days on the job and it was love. Laurel has been at News 96.5 since October of 2011.

When she isn't working the air waves, Laurel loves rocking out at concerts, digging for new music to jam to, and riding her motorcycle.
