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.
