Lauren Pastrana is the co-anchor of CBS4 News This Morning airing Monday-Friday, from 5 to 7 AM. She joined CBS Miami in April 2012 as a reporter. She is an Emmy nominated, multimedia journalist with experience in television, radio and web-based news reporting.

Lauren believes everyone has a story to tell and she loves to share them in the community where she grew up. When Lauren first became a member of the CBS4 family, she was also doing double duty as the morning news anchor at Newsradio 610 WIOD. After many months of very limited sleep, she became a fulltime weekday evening reporter on CBS4.

A Miami native, Lauren returned to South Florida from WINK-TV, the CBS affiliate in Fort Myers, where she was as a reporter and fill-in anchor.
Before her stint in Southwest Florida, Lauren was a reporter and afternoon news anchor at WIOD where she covered everything from Super Bowl XLIV to local political corruption. She also spent a season as an in-stadium reporter for the show “Miami Dolphins Game Day Live.”

Lauren graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Florida, where she was awarded the Four-Year Scholar Award, a distinction bestowed to those who graduate at the top of their class. While in Gainesville, Lauren anchored and reported for WUFT-TV and was part of the team responsible for launching a Spanish-language web-based news service targeting Alachua and the surrounding counties titled AM850: Noticias en Español.

In her free time, Lauren enjoys reading and spending time with her husband, son Jordan, and their dog Daisy.
