It all began when Lauren and her Dad, Carlos - an award-winning
photojournalist, noticed that there was no media geared towards teens and teen
issues. That is when they created "Teen Talk". Teen Talk was a weekly
segment that introduced fun and serious stories about kids and adults that
impact teenagers' lives - this was at the age of fourteen. Lauren and her Dad
brought the concept to General Manager, Don Browne and News Director, Tim
Geraghty of NBC-6. They loved the idea of bringing a fresh perspective to their
already successful veteran News Anchors. Thus, Lauren began producing and
hosting, subsequently, complimenting the news gathering team.

NBC-6's Teen Talk, Lauren has hosted/produced: an exclusive segment with Aaron
and Angel Carter for Access Hollywood; Andy Garcia for his 2006 film, "The
Lost City" for the NBC-6 morning news; a documentary about Cuban musical
prodigy, Israel "Cachao" Lopez; and reported on the World Series
Champion Florida Marlins.
