As the anchor of the WINK News Morning Show, Lindsey Sablan has won numerous awards for her investigative and breaking news re­ports. But, more than reporting the news, she considers it a privilege to share people’s stories.

“It’s a job I take seriously, and I’ll never forget some of the harder ones,” she says. “I’ll always remember helping a man move his valuables as floodwaters raged, talking to a mother whose daughter disappeared walking to school, or working with a sexual assault survivor to demand responsive DNA testing.”

Sablan also donates her time to charitable organizations, including the American Cancer Society, Juve­nile Diabetes Research Foundation, Path 2 Freedom, and the NCH Safe & Healthy Children’s Coalition of Collier County. She also works with Special Olympics, Center for the Arts Bonita Springs, and Lee BIA Builders Care.
