Lindsey Mills

Lindsey Mills co-anchors the morning and noon newscasts for WMBD News and is a co-host of Good Day Central Illinois, weekday mornings on WYZZ. She joined the team in October 2014 and is now proud to call Peoria home. This New England native loves sharing stories and telling people what’s going on in their community, first thing in the morning.

Before moving to Peoria, Lindsey anchored the 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscasts for WVII and WFVX; the local ABC and FOX affiliates in Bangor, ME. Her career has also included writing and ENG Producing for WCVB-TV in Boston, MA.

In August 2013, Lindsey had the opportunity to tell the story of a Maine craftsman’s efforts to help a small Connecticut town devastated by tragedy.  He created a stone memorial honoring the victims of the shooting at Sandy Hook elementary school. Over the course of three days Lindsey followed the ‘Rock of Angels’ and its crew – chronicling the emotional journey from Bangor, ME to Newtown, CT.

Lindsey is a 2011 graduate of Endicott College in Beverly, MA where she studied journalism. She was Editor-in-Chief of the campus newspaper and led the Gulls field hockey team as captain. She also helped establish the school's first women's ice hockey team.

Lindsey is an avid supporter of several non-profit and charitable organizations such as the Women’s Sports Foundation, Easter Seals of Central Illinois and the American Heart Association.  When not at work you’ll find Lindsey volunteering at Children's Hospital of Illinois, training for her next road race, cooking up some family Italian recipes, or watching NHL hockey.
