BIOGRAPHY:
Lindsay Oliver comes from WVVA in Bluefield, WV. She began as a bureau reporter and was later promoted to weekend anchor. She covered a wide array of stories from the indictments of county commissioners, to the multi-state crime spree of a father and son who police say killed a North Carolina couple, then drove them to West Virginia where they engaged in a shootout with police officers.

Before working in West Virginia, Lindsay lived in New York City where she was a guest booker and segment producer for the Fox News Channel's morning shows. She was hired for Fox & Friends and helped launch the early morning show, Fox & Friends First. During her time there, she interviewed and produced segments for governors, senators, even then-citizen President Donald Trump. She also wrangled up segments with Grumpy Cat, monkeys that draw and drink juice boxes, singers and celebrities.

Lindsay was born and raised in a suburb on the east side of Cleveland. After graduating Summa Cum Laude from high school, she attended the University of Miami. She double majored in broadcast journalism and economics with minors in business and finance.

As soon as she moved to Eastern North Carolina, Lindsay wanted to become a part of the community through volunteering. She helps out with the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina and loves fostering animals. She volunteers with Rocking Horse Ranch, a therapeutic riding program for kids and adults with disabilities. Plus she is a member of the Greenville Women's League, which is an organization dedicated to bettering the community through volunteer efforts and fellowship.
