Lindsey Monroe joined Storm Team 10 in January 2012 as the morning and midday meteorologist.
Lindsey is from Cambridge City, Indiana. She is a 2011 graduate of Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology and Climatology with a minor in Telecommunications. She got her start in broadcasting as a weather anchor for NewsLink Indiana, which airs in eight counties throughout east-central Indiana on the local WIPB-TV affiliate as well as the local NPR station. She also completed an internship at WTHI’s sister station, WISH-TV in Indianapolis, IN, during the summer of 2010.
Not only was Lindsey awarded Dean’s Honors all throughout college, she also received several scholarships in Meteorology and Telecommunications. She was awarded the Indiana Broadcasters Association’s High School scholarship in 2007, then again as a college student in 2011.
During the summer of 2011, Lindsey had the opportunity to participate in an 18-day storm chasing field observation study in the Great Plains. Here, she came within a half mile of a tornado in central Nebraska and witnessed severe weather at its deadliest. She plans to use this hands-on forecasting experience to keep the Wabash Valley safe when severe weather strikes.
When not forecasting the weather, Lindsey enjoys participating in volunteer and community service efforts. She has been a proud supporter of the Lupus Foundation of America ever since she was diagnosed with lupus in 2004. She has also worked with the Children’s Miracle Network, which raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America.
