Karen Lehr


Idaho News 6 Anchor/Reporter

Karen joined the Idaho News 6 news team in June 2013 after living in Florida her whole life.

She currently anchors and produces weekend newscasts, and reports on Idaho's opioid epidemic weekly in our Finding Hope series on Monday nights.

Karen was honored to receive the Idaho State Broadcaster's Association "Best Reporter" award in both 2017 and 2018.

During her college years, Karen interned at the CBS and Fox affiliates in Orlando, FL. She graduated from the University of Central Florida with honors and a major in Broadcast Journalism and a minor in Crime, Law, and Deviance.

Karen and her husband love living in Boise. The South Florida-native still gets excited about Idaho's changing seasons and enjoys gardening in her backyard and hiking in the Boise foothills with her dogs.

On NFL Sundays you might catch her secretly wearing "New York Giants Blue" on the desk to subtly support her favorite team!

If you see Karen out around town don't hesitate to say, "hi"!
