Biography

Lara Spencer, born Lara Christine Von Seelen, grew up in the shadow of New York City, which soon became the hub for her career. After attending Penn State University in in the late '80s, Spencer took her broadcast journalism degree to the Big Apple, becoming an NBC page. At NBC, she doggedly followed other reporters to gain valuable experience, leading to a job in the NBC sales department. However, she was restless working behind the scenes, and she left her cozy gig for her first on-camera position at WDEF-TV in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Away from New York City, she wore many hats at WDEF-TV before soon returning to New York to work on News 12 Long Island and WABC-7. Finally, in 1999, she became a national correspondent on "Good Morning America" (ABC 1975- ). While she excelled at "Good Morning America," Spencer eventually left, leading to more opportunities, including a two-year stint as a host on "Antiques Roadshow" (PBS 1996- ) in 2004 and 2005 and launching and co-hosting the syndicated "Entertainment Tonight" spinoff "The Insider" (2004- ). She eventually left "The Insider" to return to "Good Morning America," this time as a co-anchor in 2011. While there, she also branched out with other projects that primarily focused around her love of second-hand items and thrifting. In 2011, she launched a game show hosted by Cedric the Entertainer called "It's Worth What" (NBC 2011). A year later, she created and produced "Flea Market Flip" (HGTV 2012- ) and wrote a book focusing on how to make the best out of yard sales.
