Lindsay Riley

Lindsay joined the WTTV team in December of 2014. She can be seen weekdays on WTTV Morning News and Noon.
Before coming to WTTV, Lindsay worked at KXAS in Dallas, TX, LEX 18 in Lexington, KY, and WIVB in Buffalo, NY. Forecasting in these different regions has given her the opportunity to forecast all the diverse weather around the country, ranging from Lake Effect Snow and frigid temperatures to severe weather, heat and flooding.

While in Buffalo, she won an Emmy Award while covering “The Wild Wind Storm” of Jan., 2008. This was also one of the more memorable days of her career so far! She is bringing her passion and excitement for weather to Central Indiana and is looking forward to forecasting all the different weather the Hoosier State is going to bring her way.

Lindsay has been a weather enthusiast since she was 4 years old and becoming a broadcast meteorologist has been her lifelong goal. Instead of watching “Barney” and “Mr. Roger’s” she would watch The Weather Channel for hours on end. This passion took her through her childhood and she eventually earned her B.S. in Meteorology from The Pennsylvania State University where she graduated with honors.

While growing up in New Jersey the most memorable storms were the Blizzards of ’93 and ’96 as well as Tropical Storms Bertha and Floyd.

“There was no single weather event that turned me on to weather, instead it was just one of those passions I was born with,” said Lindsay.

When Lindsay isn’t at work she is most likely enjoying the great outdoors. Hiking, biking, traveling and skiing are her favorite hobbies, and if you happen to run into her, she’ll most likely have her yellow lab, Brody, by her side.

A few items on her bucket list include: running a marathon, climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, riding in a hot air balloon and going to the Winter Olympics Games.

When college football season arrives, Lindsay is rooting for her Penn State Nittany Lions. She is also excited to attend some Colts and Pacers games and check out the many great restaurants in Indianapolis!
