Tim Lammers is an anchor for the FOX61 Morning News Monday-Friday mornings from 4-10 a.m.

A native of South Windsor, Tim came to FOX61 in 2002 as a Sports Producer and never left. Since then, he has filled the roles of Anchor, Reporter, Producer and Videographer in the Sports Department, as well as being a News Feature and Health Reporter.

Tim’s main beat in the Sports Department was following the UConn Football program’s rise to national respectability, including the school’s first-ever BCS Bowl berth in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, AZ. He also covered the UConn Men’s Basketball team’s third National Championship at the 2012 Final Four in Houston, TX.

As a health reporter, Tim turned the camera around to do a Emmy-nominated story about his own challenge of finding a treatment for Avascular Necrosis, a rare degenerative bone disease he has. The story culminated in Tim going under the knife, on camera, to receive a cutting-edge stem cell transplant using his own bone marrow. Since then, he has received a constant response from the story, as people all over the world have contacted him to find out more about the procedure and the disease.

Tim lives with his wife, Kerri, whom he met while they were co-workers at FOX61, and his step-son Alex. Tim and Kerri married in 2016.

    GLASTONBURY — Gary Kazanjian of Glastonbury played lacrosse and was a standout lineman for a standout football team at Choate Rosemary Hall. Being a football player, he was accustomed to nagging injuries, but in 2017, one injury went from merely nagging to threatening his leg in just weeks. “My leg got crushed in between two people and my foot kind of fell asleep, and I didn’t really know what it was,” he said. Over the following two weeks, the numbness […]

  • Health Watch: The ABCDE’s of detecting melanoma, and a no-scalpel technique

    Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, but five-year survival rates are well over 90 percent if it can be caught early enough. Courtesy of Dr. Hao Feng, a Dermatologist at UConn Health, here is a simple ABCDE guide to help you determine if a mole on your skin needs to be checked for cancer. A stands for asymmetry. “You do not want something that looks different on one half and different on the other half,” said Dr. Feng. […]

  • New study could change the way we think about, and treat, Anorexia

    While the eating disorder Anorexia can cause extreme weight loss, a new study may have experts looking at the disorder from an opposite perspective – and considering the possibility that naturally thin people may be more susceptible to the disorder, to begin with. The study, published this month in the journal Nature Genetics, found genetic links between Anorexia and genetic markers for other diseases, but also natural traits tied to people’s metabolism. “What this study actually suggests is that people […]

  • Health Watch: The limits of human exercise endurance; jogging for better learning

    Researchers at Duke University appear to have found the limit to which extreme endurance athletes’ bodies can keep up the pace for so long before turning on itself. The researchers primarily studied runners who were running the equivalent of 117 marathons over the course of several months, and found as time went on, the athletes’ bodies were less and less able to turn food calories into energy before eventually switching to fat-burning. The researchers measured this by starting with an […]

  • Orthodox Jewish communities worry about stigma, misconceptions of measles outbreak

    Rabbi Yitzchok Adler of Beth David Synagogue in West Hartford wanted to make it very clear – despite two of the biggest pockets of infection in the latest measles outbreak coming in Orthodox Jewish communities, the Torah is not to blame. “I have not come across a single credible rabbi who will take a position that [measles vaccination] is counter to Judaism,” he said, “if anything, it’s the exact opposite.” “There’s just simply no excuse not to be vaccinated.” Ed […]

  • Just how likely is a Measles outbreak in Connecticut?

    So far, the latest outbreak of Measles in the U.S. has become the largest since the disease was considered eradicated here in the early 2000s – at over 700 confirmed cases, three of which are in Connecticut. Health officials said Connecticut, as a whole, has an excellent vaccination rate, above the threshold normally needed to ensure that isolated cases of the highly contagious disease don’t turn into an outbreak. However, measles is so contagious that it can flourish in small […]

  • Study: Gender differences in autism could be from protein dysregulation.

    According to the group Autism Speaks, boys are four times as likely to be diagnosed with autism than girls, and there is still no clear answer as to why, although one research team from the University of New Hampshire has made some inroads towards an explanation. While gene mutations, additions and deletions have long been associated with autism, this group is looking in a different area, protein regulation in the brain. “Protein regulates neuro-development, regulates the synapse’s formation,” said Dr. […]

  • Health Watch: How long is too long on the Keto Diet?

    According to a recent survey of doctors by Readers Digest, dieters shouldn’t stay on the high-fat, low-carb Keto diet for longer than six months, although one local dietitian said adults shouldn’t be on the diet at all. “The Keto Diet was never meant to be used by people for intentional weight loss purposes,” said registered dietitian Beth Rosen, “It was used for children with epilepsy to stop seizures because it was meant to slow brain function.” The mechanism of the […]

  • Health Watch: Flu Season is persisting and evolving

    It’s understandable to assume the end of winter means the end of flu season, but that usually isn’t the case. According to CDC data, this flu season, while not as severe as last year’s overall, is not dropping from its peak as quickly. A pulmonologist and infectious disease specialist with whom we spoke also said this is also the time of year that flu season often starts to change in its composition, as different strains become more prominent. “Last year’s […]

  • Health Watch: Mi-Eye imaging can be quicker, cheaper and faster than MRI

    BRISTOL — Kathryn Hinrichs of Bristol went to Bristol Hospital, and Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Chris Betz, to get her injured knee looked at once again. This time, though, instead of taking 45 minutes for an MRI, and then having to book a follow-up appointment, she got her knee looked at and her problem diagnosed within ten minutes, thanks to a hand-held imagine device called Mi-Eye. “It’s basically a 4k camera inside this little needle (about two millimeters in diameter),” said […]
