#MediaMonday – Lindsey Reiser

LindseyToday’s #MediaMonday comes to us from Valley native Lindsey Reiser, an award-winning multimedia journalist who reports and anchors for the AZ Family duet of Channels 3 and 5.  She joined the CBS 5 team back in 2011.

Lindsey, time to share:

After attending Desert Mountain High School, I went on to graduate from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University.  I studied for a semester in Alicante, Spain, and also earned a degree in Spanish at ASU.   I currently serve as a mentor to journalism students.
My first job in TV was with KTSM/KDBC in El Paso, Texas, where I covered border and immigration issues. While in El Paso I investigated public corruption, uncovered poor business practices and routinely reported on the violence across the border.
I will be celebrating seven years with Arizona’s Family in August. I report at 9 and 10 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, and anchor the weekend newscasts (5, 6, 9, and 10 p.m. on Saturdays, 5:30 p.m. and 9 and 10 p.m. Sundays).
I’m proud to serve as a member of United Blood Services’ Community Leadership Council, a volunteer advisory board for the UBS of Arizona.
When I’m not reporting or volunteering, I love everything the beautiful city of Phoenix has to offer: great weather, hiking trails, restaurants, running, and, of course, living close to my family. I also post too many pictures of my pup Jules.

Favorite type of music?

I love songs I can run to with a good beat, but also the classics. Lately I’ve been loving what Spotify recommends for me.

Favorite local haunts?

First Draft Book Bar, Green New American Vegetarian

Favorite places to visit?

Sedona and Monument Valley!

Favorite food?

I’m a vegetarian, so I cook a lot, and you can see more food pictures than you want on my Instagram account, @lindseyreiser.

Favorite book?

Harry Potter series, First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.
I’m always looking for great stories to tell so if you have an idea, please let me know.
You can follow me on Twitter, @LindseyReiser, and on Facebook.
