The Eastpointe Cruisin’ Gratiot Board of Directors is
Lauren Podell – Wallis began her career at Local-4 News in December of 2007 by broadcasting traffic reports. In just 8 years, she has gone from traffic jams and road closures to general assignment reporter and now, Weekend Anchor.
Reporting on the Christmas Day bombing at Detroit Metro Airport, Presidential Campaigns, crime scenes, and interviews with actress Kim Catrall, Lauren covers a wide range of stories and events happening across the state.
Lauren graduated from Oakland University with Honors as a Communications and Journalism major and was recently voted ‘2015 Female Television Personality of the Year’. With her sparkling personality and friendly presentation, it is easy to see why.
And, she gets her media chops from dad Doug Podell, legendary former radio host on WRIF-FM. Her grandparents had ties to St. Basil the Great Parish, so she has hometown connections right here in Eastpointe. Her family plans to attend the Cruise.
