Why Spotlight?

Valley Spotlight is a destination program just for the Valley which focuses on uplifting stories and places that make living in this area great!  Lauren and Mike are excited to showcase stories that you may not have heard. This is a chance to focus on the people and places that deserve the spotlight!

Lauren Lindvig

Co-Host

Lauren Lindvig is a proud Chicago native, and an even prouder Youngstown resident.  She graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia and credits her decade of experience working in broadcast news for having the ability to tell compelling stories. Despite Lauren's ability to talk for a living, she believes that listening is the foundation for a solid message. She has enjoyed working with Mike Case for almost a decade delivering the days news on WFMJ Today. When Lauren is not spending the day with her Valley Spotlight family, she enjoys listening to her 4 year-old daughter Sabina tell stories about her day. She thanks her family, friends and team members for keeping her sane.

Mike Case makes the commute from his hometown of Tallmadge, Ohio to the Valley everyday.  He graduated from Case Western Reserve and has spent the last 25 years delivering the day's news and sports headlines.  He decided to leave the anchor desk at WFMJ-TV when the 2:30 am wake up call just got to be too much to take! He continues to enjoy listening to people share their stories and is looking forward to hearing them with Lauren. He enjoys spending time with his family, playing golf and taking naps.
