Tim Lammers is the Weekend Anchor of the FoxCT Morning News and a General Assignment Reporter for the FoxCT Morning News during the week.
Tim came to FoxCT in 2002 as a Sports Producer and never left. Since then, he has filled the roles of Anchor, Reporter, Producer and Videographer in the Sports Department, as well as being a News Feature and Health Reporter. His business cards used to be huge.
Tim's main beat in the Sports Department was following the UConn Football program's rise to national respectability, including the school's first-ever BCS Bowl berth in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, AZ.
He also covered the UConn Men's Basketball team's third National Championship at the 2012 Final Four in Houston, TX.
As a health reporter, Tim turned the camera around to do a Emmy-nominated story
about his own challenge of finding a treatment for Avascular Necrosis, a rare degenerative bone disease he has. The story culminated in Tim going under the knife, on camera, to receive a cutting-edge stem cell transplant using his own bone marrow. Since then, he has received a constant response from the story, as people all over the world have contacted him to find out more about the procedure and the disease.
Tim grew up in South Windsor, and graduated from Syracuse University. A Central Connecticut "townie" if there ever was one, Tim considers a road trip to be driving 15 minutes to visit his father in Ellington. He is currently single, and lives in Manchester, 10 minutes away from where he grew up. In his spare time, he golfs horribly.
