Lindsay Czarniak is coming home to NBC4 — temporarily.
Czarniak will report from Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis exclusively for the station she worked at for six years.
"Washington has always had a special place in its heart for Lindsay," said Vice President of News Mike Goldrick. "What a treat for our viewers to get to know her again during the week leading up to the most-watched event on television."
A native of Northern Virginia, Czarniak quickly became a popular sports anchor when legendary sports anchor George Michael brought her to Washington in 2005. During that time, she made a name for herself covering Washington sports teams and reporting from the Olympics. Also during that time, she fell in love with and married NBC4 anchor Craig Melvin. The couple now has two children.
Since leaving NBC4 in 2011, Czarniak anchored for ESPN, a job she left last fall.
Czarniak will be reunited with her longtime photographer Chris Kerwin, a veteran of NBC4's sports department.
Their reports will start airing on Monday, Jan. 29. The Super Bowl will be televised by NBC at 6:30 p.m. ET on Feb. 4.
