The Perfect Host
Lara has worked her way up the news ladder. From giving tours at 30 Rockefeller Plaza to driving endless hours to cover strawberry festivals and store openings to her current success as co-host of Good Morning America, audiences everywhere relate to her. Lara attended Penn State University on a scholarship for springboard and platform diving, became captain of the varsity team, and was named All American. A working mom of two, her ability to combine her passions for parenting and doing a job she loves, coupled with her professional, down-to-earth style has made her a favorite of organizations around the country to host or moderate their events.
Blue Blood Style On a Blue Collar Budget
When not on the air, Lara Spencer can be found scouring thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets for undiscovered treasures. Her ability to spot potential in even the most sorry-looking of items has earned her a steady and enthusiastic following of design requests, from spearheading giant treasure-hunting adventures at flea markets to full-blown home renovation projects. As a former host of PBS’ Antiques Roadshow, she’s seen the gamut of hopeful finds…from the rarest of objects to the simply sentimental. But Lara knows that decoration is a reflection of one’s personality and that it doesn’t need to cost a lot to achieve that. Lara shows you what to look for and gives you easy fix-up ideas that transform not only the items, but the spaces you love.
