Lindsey Boetsch is excited to be living and working in the Sunshine State. She joined the First Coast News team as a multimedia journalist April Fool's Day 2013... No joke. Since then she has taken on many roles including weather anchor, reporter, and fill-in anchor.
She comes from KHQA in Quincy, Illinois. She started there a week after graduating college as a producer, reporter, and weather anchor. She also produced and anchored the morning show for two years.
She covered one of the worst winter storms on record in Quincy, the Blizzard of 2011. The city saw 22 inches of snow in two days. She also traveled to Joplin, Missouri three months after the deadly tornado hit the town.
Lindsey grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from Illinois State University.
She is happy to trade her snow boots for a beach umbrella. She loves exploring all the First Coast has to offer, including all of the awesome local restaurants.
In her spare time, she loves exploring all the First Coast has to offer, including all of the awesome local restaurants. She is trying to get better in the kitchen and is always looking for easy (dairy-free) recipes.
