FAMILIAR FACE RETURNS TO 6NEWS LAWRENCE AS NEWS DIRECTOR
Lawrence Habitat for Humanity’s community outreach coordinator Lindsey Slater returned to 6News Lawrence to serve as News Director starting May 13. Slater spent five years at the station, first as a reporter and anchor, then as a producer.
“We are excited to welcome Lindsey back to 6News. Her enthusiasm for local news and her connection to our communities will strengthen our commitment to provide quality, reliable news for our viewers,” said the station’s general manager Ann Niccum.
Slater left the news business in April 2012 to become Lawrence Habitat’s first-ever community outreach coordinator. She worked to expand awareness of the non-profit organization through tradition and social media, presentations and meeting with community leaders and members.
“I truly believe in Habitat’s mission to eliminate poverty housing,” Slater said. “But returning to 6News as the news director is an opportunity I just couldn’t pass up.”
