Laura Laughead (“Law-Head”) is no stranger to Texas. She grew up in Houston, spent her college years in Austin, and now she’s so excited to report for Lubbock as a multimedia journalist and weekend anchor for the KAMC news team.
Before graduating as Valedictorian of the UT Austin Journalism school in May 2020, Laura worked as an executive producer, anchor, writer and red carpet interviewer for Texas Student TV’s entertainment news broadcast and as the creator/producer of an original sitcom. She also wrote for The Daily Texan and Spark Magazine.
She refined her journalism skills with internships at ABC13 in Houston, CBS Austin, Austin PBS and Good Morning America in New York City.
Some of Laura’s favorite career moments include covering SXSW, interviewing Matthew McConaughey, Natalie Portman and Helen Mirren, and working as an Instagram reporter for Good Morning America. She also had the privilege of winning two awards at the Lone Star Emmys in 2019 and being selected as one of the top eight outstanding 2020 UT graduates.
When she’s off the clock, Laura loves binge watching TV shows, baking, writing short stories and eating her weight in Mexican and Indian food. She’s looking forward to getting to know Lubbock!
