Harrisburg native Lindsay Czarniak will host an Olympics show for NBC exclusively on women’s sports

Lindsay Czarniak is known to many sports fans for her years at Fox and ESPN, and before then at Washington’s NBC affiliate.

But before she got to the D.C. area, where she also went to high school and college, she spent the early years of her life in Camp Hill, Pa., just a few miles outside of Harrisburg. Her father worked for Gannett News Service, and covered the Three Mile Island accident when she was 18 months old.

“Big yards, and it was more of a country atmosphere, and I loved it,” she said. “I remember it as just this great neighborhood that we were in. … I like the size of Harrisburg, and I do think the people there are just really cool.”
