INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Daybreak Anchor Kylie Conway announced Tuesday she is the third member of the Daybreak team to announce she’s expecting in recent months.
Nina Criscuolo, Lauren Lowrey and Kylie are each 11 weeks apart as far as their due dates are concerned.
“I was actually a month pregnant when Lauren made her on-air surprise announcement. I was in shock. I was so incredibly happy for her and at the same time I wanted to scream, ‘Me too!’ and give her a huge hug,” said Kylie.

In an industry where constant moves, ever-changing schedules and working holidays are the norm, Kylie often wondered if children were in the cards for her. But, once she met her fiancé, Zuni, she knew she wanted to try.
“He is just so full of life and laughter. I’ve never had so much fun in my life. He has this way of making everyone fall in love with him so quickly with his humor, charm and sincerity. I knew immediately, this man has to be a father!” said Kylie.
About a week ago, Kylie pulled WISH-TV personalities one by one into a room. They thought they were answering the question, “What is one big highlight of your life?” Instead, Kylie dropped the news and caught their candid reactions.
As you would expect, long-time WISH-TV anchor Dave Barras had the most animated response.
“You’re (bleep) me!” he yelled.
Teresa Mackin stared silently for seconds as the wheels turned trying to figure out who could be the third pregnant woman on the team.
Drew Blair, Randy Ollis and Scott Sander each had wonderful reactions of their own. After the initial shock wore off each of them, of course, gave Kylie a big hug and congratulations.
WISH-TV General Manager Les Vann said this is a first for him.
“It’s been 38 years I’ve been in television stations. I don’t remember three women in the building at the same time being pregnant, let alone three women on the same show. That’s why even I am drinking bottled water,” Vann said.
Kylie and Zuni say they are excited to find out exactly what they’re expecting at the 20-week checkup coming up very soon. Girl or boy, these two say they have never been more excited (and scared) in their entire lives.
