Elizabeth Alvarez

Elizabeth is an award-winning, bilingual journalist who has worked in news since the late 1990s.  

The SoCal native is a proud graduate of California State University, Long Beach where she earned a degree in Broadcast Journalism. Go BEACH!

Her career as an anchor and reporter has taken her across the country. Elizabeth got her start in news straight out of college working for KCBS-TV in Los Angeles as a news assistant. Her first on-air job was as a “one-man-band” in Roswell, New Mexico. She then went on to work as an anchor/reporter in El Paso, Orlando and Albuquerque.

Elizabeth has covered some of the biggest stories to make national headlines. She brought viewers up-to-the-minute information from the Fort Bliss army post after the ambush of the 507th Maintenance Company in Nasiriyah, Iraq during the 2003 invasion. While working for the FOX O&O in Orlando, Elizabeth helped to cover the infamous Casey Anthony case. She also covered a lot of severe weather assignments in Florida including hurricanes, tropical storms and tornadoes. Her favorite assignments, however, were covering space shuttle launches from Kennedy Space Center.

She’s a very familiar face in San Diego, having spent nearly 8 years at KUSI before joining FOX 5.

When she’s not working, Elizabeth stays busy with shuffling her kids between school, baseball and softball.  She’s also an avid salsa dancer.
