Lindsey Boetsch – Judge
Lindsey came to the River City by the Sea in March 2013 after surviving another cold and dreary Midwest winter. She’s an anchor, reporter, fill-in traffic anchor, and weather forecaster at First Coast News.
The same year she moved to Florida, her dad was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis. She watched his disease progress until it was hard for him to even speak a sentence. It was heartbreaking. Her dad got a second chance at life in November 2017 when he received a single lung transplant at the Mayo Clinic.
Lindsey has served on the local leadership board of the American Lung Association since 2018 and is very excited to be a judge of this year’s Lip Sync Battle!
Jessica Morgan – Judge
The American Lung Association is a cause close to my heart. My twin brother, James, was born with Asthma. I have seen him struggle with breathing problems our entire lives. I will gladly do anything to make his life easier, as well as the other 15 million people suffering from this lung disease.
John Scott – Judge
John Scott is a native Jacksonvillian and has worked in Jacksonville radio his whole career! He has spent the past 30 years at WQIK in a multitude of roles, currently as Program Director and Morning Show co-host with Robbie Rose and Toni Foxx.
John is also the author of a soon-to-be-published book on Jacksonville music history and is currently working on a book of lists for Jacksonville’s upcoming bicentennial. He is also a singer and songwriter, having written songs for others and for his band that he fronted in the early 2000s.
More fun facts: He has been married to a saint for 31 years; he was the first person to sing the national anthem at the Jacksonville Arena; and has lived with asthma his entire life, thus making the American Lung Association a special charity to him.
