Is Lindsey Nance Married? Often Jokes About Her Dating Life
WSMV's Traffic Anchor, Lindsay Nance can often be seen having fun around with her coworkers on air and it's apparent that they have great chemistry together. She is passionate about her work and often shares snippets from it and her daily life. However, if there’s one thing that she hasn’t been very open about in her recent years, it's her romantic life.
But back in July and August of 2019, the traffic anchor hinted that she was without a partner when she joked about millennial dating and marriage on air.
Lindsay Does Not Have Time For Dating
On 31 July 2019, her time on-air made for an entertaining bit when she walked out of the panel while her coworkers were commenting on millennial dating. When everyone on set started laughing, the reporter started laughing and said, “I am out of this one guys. I am out. I am not even commenting on this one”
When the topic is millennials dating.... you leave the desk.

One of her coworkers joked while pointing out that she wanted to get right back to traffic instead of discussing millennial dating and she replied in a witty manner.
No. Listen, we have time for a lot of things this morning. Dating is not one of them. I have more important things to talk about. Like this accident on I24.
The next day on August 1, she reinforced the idea of her being single by saying that she couldn’t relate to talks of marriage and loved the freedom that came from not being in a relationship.
