Joining Newschannel 3 is a home coming for Lourin! The meto-Detroit native spent four years in West Michigan while attending Kalamazoo College.
Keep an eye out for Lourin on the coast line she's living in Holland working as the station's Lakeshore reporter and can't get enough of the beach!
Lourin joins WWMT after working as the evening anchor at KQTV in St. Joseph, Missouri. While in St. Joe, Lourin was humbled when she spent two weeks on the ground following the deadly tornado in Joplin, and taking helicopter tours with the governor following record flooding in northwest Missouri. She also enjoyed daredevil stunts, repelling off a 200 story building and tumbling in an aerobatic plane for the city's air show.
Lourin also earned a Missouri Broadcaster Award for telling the story of a 70-year-old man paralyzed from his flu shot that learned to use his body again.
Before starting her on-air career in St. Joseph, Lourin took a bite out of the Big Apple. She worked in New York City as an NBC Page (she believes Kenneth's character on 30 Rock is modeled after her), working for shows such as Conan O'Brien, The Today Show and SNL. She then moved on to recruiting talent for NBC.
Lourin was a theatre major in college, but she was introduced to the media industry during an internship at Saturday Night Live. However, it wasn't until she accidentally walked in front of a rolling camera in front of Anne Curry and Al Roker that Lourin got a taste of life on the screen, and developed a knack for news. She has been chasing the dream ever since.
When not tracking down stories, Lourin is an active Special Olympics and Red Cross volunteer. She is training for her third half marathon, loves skiing, is on a mission to make the perfect pizza dough and is a trained fire eater.
