On this episode of Talking Buffalo, Patrick Moran is joined by WGRZ-TV sports anchor and reporter Lindsey Moppert to discuss her life and career to this point with a heavy focus on getting to know Lindsey and how she feels about working and living in Buffalo.

Moppert is just approaching her mid-20’s but is already beginning to carve out a nice sports broadcasting career for herself. Lindsey talks about growing up near Philly and always loving sports, with cheerleading becoming a big part of her life before she even turned five and would ultimately take her to becoming a captain on the college cheerleading team at Temple.

She also talks about how the opportunity came about to join WRGZ-TV and move to Buffalo just a handful of months upon graduating college—a rarity for a young adult essentially fresh out of college to get a job in a market the size of Buffalo.

Also discussed is the positive impact now former WGRZ sports director Adam Benignin had on her as well as the newest sports director there, Jon Scott. That plus the process of gaining confidence in front of the camera, views on social media, the “Fun Fact Finale” and a ton more with one of Buffalo’s rising media stars.
