Elizabeth Espinosa is a multilingual, two-time Emmy Award-winning reporter for KTLA.

She can also be seen on CNN Latino’s “Sin Límites,” available on KBEH-TV Channel 63 in Los Angeles

Elizabeth was previously a general assignment reporter and weekend anchor at KTTV-TV, where she spent six years as one of the station’s pinnacle reporters on the Fox 11 morning news and “Good Day L.A.” In addition to her local work with KTTV-TV, she was a correspondent for “Good Day Live,” a nationally syndicated variety program on the FOX network, which hit the airwaves in 2001.

Elizabeth’s passion for storytelling has taken her across the hemisphere and into some of the world’s most treacherous regions. Most recently, Elizabeth produced and hosted a special report about disabled and abandoned children in El Salvador. In addition, she co-hosted and co-produced “Forgotten Footprints: The Hunted Children of Uganda,” a 30-minute special, which received an Emmy for highlighting the crisis in East Africa. Elizabeth has also traveled to Pakistan to interview women about arranged marriages in Islamabad, Lahore and Al-Qaeda stronghold Peshawar.

Elizabeth began her journalism career as an assignment desk editor in Los Angeles for Telemundo’s flagship Los Angeles affiliate KVEA-TV. She was also a news reporter for Telemundo’s San Francisco affiliate KSTS-TV, Fox 6’s XETV-TV in San Diego, and at Univision’s flagship station, KMEX-TV in Los Angeles.

Elizabeth credits much of her success to the struggles she’s endured growing up with a severely disabled younger brother. As a result, Elizabeth is an advocate for the rights of the disabled and works with various community groups and non-profit organizations, such as Ability First and HOLA (Heart of Los Angeles).

Throughout her broadcast career, Elizabeth has received many honors. In 2007, the Mexican American Opportunity Foundation named Elizabeth its “Woman of the Year.” That same year, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa honored Elizabeth for her support and work with Operation Confidence, a committee that helps the disabled population in hurricane-ravaged New Orleans rebuild. Prior to that, HOLA awarded Elizabeth with its prestigious Voice of Los Angeles award. She’s also won community awards from AIMSA, an international non-profit aimed at offering aid to impoverished women and children and HAPCOA, the Hispanic Police Command Officers Association.

Elizabeth was born and raised in Los Angeles. She is a graduate of UCLA and speaks five languages. She is an avid dancer, loves all types of music and is a world traveler.
