First Alert Desk Anchor/Feature Reporter
Lynden Blake is ecstatic to be in Birmingham just an hour and some change north of where she grew up in Alexander City!
Lynden is WBRC's First Alert Desk Anchor. She looks forward to bringing central Alabama breaking news and new alerts throughout the morning on Good Day Alabama. After the show, you'll find Lynden out in the community telling human interest sports stories throughout the region.
Lynden graduated from Benjamin Russell and earned her journalism degree from Auburn University. It may be hard to find a more passionate Auburn fan.
Prior to coming to the Magic City, Lynden spent more than three years in Huntsville, Alabama as a sports and news anchor, where she covered everything from bass fishing to the College Football National Championship to the 2020 Election.
While in the Rocket City, Lynden spent time in Birmingham too. She has covered UAB Men’s and Women’s Basketball for ESPN+ since 2019. If you see her at Bartow this season, say hello!
Before moving back to Alabama, Lynden spent three years in Sarasota, Florida, covering news and sports along the Suncoast. Some of her favorite memories are working with Dick Vitale for his annual gala which raises money for pediatric cancer research. In her free time, you’ll find Lynden at a ballpark or with her dog, Lido, enjoying all Birmingham has to offer! She loves showing off her pup on her social media accounts! So, give her a follow, she’ll love to connect!
