TEMPLE, Texas — Lindsay Liepman joined the 6 News Team in 2022 and anchors the 5, 6 and 10 p.m. newscast alongside longtime KCEN Anchor Kris Radcliffe. She's glad to be back in her hometown market and delivering the news each night to the community she loves.
Lindsay is a Central Texas native, growing up in Mexia and graduating in 1999. She earned a journalism degree at Texas A&M University in 2003 and began her career as a News Reporter at KBTX-TV in Bryan/College Station.
She moved to New England and launched the first CBS affiliate in Western Massachusetts as the Main Anchor at WSHM-TV.
The sun and sand of Southwest Florida came calling. Lindsay was promoted to Morning and Noon Anchor at WINK-TV in Ft. Myers, Florida and there she anchored historic coverage of the final NASA shuttle launch and earned both an Emmy award and an Edward R. Murrow award for her story "Witness Test." It exposed the inconsistencies in witness statements to police.
As the Weekend Anchor in Portland, Maine at WMTW-TV, she covered Former President George H.W. Bush's skydive above Kennebunkport, ME on his 90th Birthday - exactly ten years after the celebratory skydive he took above the skies of College Station when Lindsay was just a cub reporter.
As Lindsay's family grew, so did the desire to move back home.
Lindsay was the Breaking News Anchor at CBS Austin News and earned a Lone Star Emmy nomination in crime news for her story, "Seeking Justice: Austin's Sex-Trafficking Triangle,” which exposed the sex trafficking trade between Dallas, Houston and Austin. She received a total of five Emmy nominations for her work at CBS Austin including “Best Anchor” for the hours of live, unscripted coverage of the Austin serial bomber, Hurricane Harvey and weekly feature segment “Forever Families.”
Most recently, Lindsay was an anchor in the Waco/Temple/Killeen television market, known for her community-focused storytelling which earned her an Edward R. Murrow Award for her feature on a Pearl Harbor survivor and an International Telly Award for directing her first feature documentary, “Blood, Sweat & Beats: The Waco Hip Hop Story.” The film premiered to a sold-out crowd at the Waco Hippodrome in February 2020 and made hip hop history in Waco.
Lindsay’s love for music is what sparked her syndicated television show “Texas Voices” which aired for three seasons on Central Texas televisions. She also led the successful effort to earn Waco a “Music Friendly Community” designation from the Texas Music Office.
In 2022, she started the non-profit Cindy Walker Foundation in her hometown of Mexia to preserve and promote the legacy of Country Music Hall of Fame Songwriter Cindy Walker. It's the focus of a second feature documentary film that Lindsay is co-directing and producing.
Lindsay loves the news but what she loves most is her family. She has four young children she calls the "Fab 4". Micah, Sawyer, Luke and Gracie are all familiar with the camera lights since they were born, and you'll see them from time-to-time on KCEN. Her youngest, Gracie wants to become a news reporter someday. If you see Lindsay at a concert or just the local grocery store, say hi! She’s from a small town, so she loves a great story.
