Lauren Shehadi was born Julia Lauren Shehadi on May 23, 1983 in McLean, Fairfox County, Virginia, USA. She and her sister were raised by their parents, Michael and Mary, in one of the most expensive zip codes in the American South. She is an American of Lebanese descent as her grandparents are originally from Lebanon.
She graduated from Langley High School in 2001 and graduated from the University of Florida.
Even in college, Lauren was preparing for a life in sports journalism. She hosted the college online sports show called Gatorzone and it served as the foundation of her successful career today. After fulfilling her duties as a host, she also worked as an intern on ‘The Best Damn Sports Show Period’, a sports television show that aired from 2001 to June 30, 2009 on Fox Sports Net.
After college, Lauren went back to the show and stayed there for a while. In 2009, after shipment hundred VHS demo tapes, she was offered a job by Jim Olson as a weekend sports anchor in Minot, North Dakota for KXMC-TV. Owned by Nexstar Media Group and affiliated with CBS/CW, the station covers both local and national news and sports. She also accepted a job as a producer for SNN in Sarasota, Florida, and had a brief stint with Comcast Sportsnet. Due to the KXMC-TV station’s affiliation with CBS, she was soon noticed by the CBS Sports Network. Lauren became an anchor and reporter for the station, covering various events. She also co-hosted other popular shows such as SEC Tailgate, Fantasy Football Today and also the ALT Games with American freestyle skier Jonny Moseley.
She remained with CBSSport.com and CBS College Network until 2012.
With her sports knowledge and ingenuity, a larger sports media channel offered her a place in their network. Lauren joined Major League Baseball (MLB) Network and her first hosting job was with sports commentator Matt Yallof on the show titled ‘The Rundown’. Soon after, she got more projects in the network’s program schedule. She is on the daily morning show, MLB Central, with veteran sports anchor Robert Flores and network analyst Mark DeRosa during the regular season. She can also be seen regularly on the daily morning show ‘Hot Stove’ during the off season.
Aside from her work with MLB, in 2018 she hosted a podcast called “The Podium”. It was produced by NBC Sports Group and VOX Media. It is specially made to cover the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The same year, she was tapped by the TBS network to cover the American League Championship Series by being the on-field commentator during the event. In 2020, Lauren was chosen by CBS and Turner Sports as a sideline reporter for NCAA March Madness. She is joined by Wally Szczerbiak, Adam Lefkoe, Adam Sucker and basketball superstar Dwayne Wade as new commentators for the annual tournament. They were supposed to complete the cover team alongside the veteran studio anchors, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the event was canceled and rescheduled for 2021.

Apart from the very rare mentions of her family in her social media accounts, little else is known about her personal life. She keeps everything private. One could only speculate by searching for meaning behind the pictures she shares publicly through her Instagram account. It was rumored that she is already engaged based on the type of rings seen on her ring finger. No one has seen the fiancee and no official press release has been given to the public. Her friends are also silent. Nevertheless, her fans congratulated her. Lauren also said she has a child during a job interview she had with Hoda and Jenna on the “Today Show,” but no other details are being shared with the public.
When Lauren is not busy with work, she dedicates her extra time to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, a non-profit organization that helps people with multiple sclerosis and their families achieve a better quality of life. She has started a social movement called “Secret Admire Her” where people can nominate any inspirational woman and Lauren will spotlight her online. It’s her way of celebrating kindness to amazing women in the community. She likes to give back whenever and wherever she can, even in this simple way. She promoted MLB and Project Sunshine’s joint project, where they gave Creative Craft Kits to young children who are often isolated in medical facilities due to their illnesses.
MLB is now part of the volunteer group that donates financial support and spends time preparing care packages for those young patients.
Her wit and breadth of knowledge about sports, particularly baseball, is not the only reason she has a growing fan base. In 2010, she was one of the top five nominees for Playboy’s Sexiest Sportscaster, and since appearing regularly on major networks, she has always been regarded as one of the most beautiful sportscasters in America. Lauren was addicted to baseball after watching a game with her father when she was 12 years old. During a conversation, she said‘I fell in love with this great game when I was 12. I remember it so vividly.
The Angels were in town to take on the Orioles, and growing up in the DC Metropolitan area, Cal Ripken Jr. larger than life, and he broke Lou Gehrigs streak of consecutive matches. The standing ovation lasted twenty minutes. It was a who’s who in the crowd. Past presidents, baseball royalty… I remember thinking, This guy has been playing for 17 years and has never missed a day of work. That is something to idolize for me.’ Her dream project is to have a show that tracks athletes in the off-season. Whether they go back to their hometown, travel abroad or participate in their charities, she wants to show viewers the other side of the athletes.
Social media accounts
She has an Instagram account with about 60,000 followers and a Twitter account with about 70,000 followers.
Both accounts are mainly about her professional work and charity work. There are very few posts about her family and she never answers questions about them either.
She is 1.79 m tall, weighs about 56 kg and her vital statistics are estimated at 36-25-38 (in). She has long black hair and black eyes.
Lauren has a stable career as a sports reporter in a very male-dominated field. Sources estimate her net worth at over $1,000,000 as of early 2020. She can certainly continue to share her blessings through the various charities close to her heart without worrying about her finances.
