Lauren Tostenson aka Lauren Mickler
Lauren Tostenson has joined KHOU 11 as a reporter. Her first day on air was last Friday.

Tostenson jumped ship from CW39 KIAH's NewsFix where she was an MMJ.

Central Texas TV viewers will know Tostenson as Mickler (her maiden name) where she spent two years as a multimedia sports journalist at Time Warner Cable News in Austin.

Before arriving in Texas, Tostenson worked two years at KEZI 9 News Eugene, Oregon. She moved to Eugene from her hometown of San Diego where she worked at O&O station NBC 7 San Diego KNSD.

Journalism runs in Tostenson's blood. Both of her parents were in the industry which meant Tostenson grew up in newsrooms. No surprise she graduated from journalism powerhouse the University of Missouri where she put in time at KOMU.

As Lauren Mickler, Tostenson became part of a viral video. Her interview of East View High School Football player Apollos Hester has more than 9 million views and countless rehashes on YouTube.

  1. kinda surprised that Lisa Hernandez has moved from 4, 5 & 10 to 4 and 6PM with Len Cannon in order to make room for Mia Gradney at 5 and 10PM with Greg Hurst

  2. Lisa is dumb as a fence post and cannot make an ad-lib

  5. Nice to see a new face in town. Lauren

    I did notice the change as well. Wonder if Lisa was wanting the Change or with Mia Filling in at 5 and 10 powers that be liked that scenario and decided to keep Lisa with just Len. But saw the 3 of them at 6 which was weird. 3 people for a half hour of news. But Guess Ch 11 wants to really change things up.

  6. I think they made the change because viewers wanted to keep Mia on in the evenings. Someone will be out soon at 6pm. Channel 2 did that years ago when they added Dominique Sachse to 10pm ...Awkward....Linda Lorelle knew the writing was on the wall then....
