Liberté Chan is excited to be back as a weathercaster and reporter at KTLA 5 after getting her start at the station in 2003.

She worked under the late Hal Fishman, a legend in L.A. news, as a writer for his one-hour news show KTLA 5 News at 10.

Liberté then worked on the Central Coast reporting in Santa Barbara County for KCOY-TV/KKFX-TV. She was recognized by California Gov. Jerry Brown for outstanding reporting in a series of pieces on the Santa Barbara County Probation Department. Liberté was then hired as the weekday morning news anchor in Palm Springs for KMIR-TV.

She returned to KTLA in 2010.

Liberté has a master's degree in public health from USC, as well as a certification in broadcast journalism from UCLA and a bachelor's degree in journalism from University of Massachusetts Amherst. She graduated early from college, studying at the Sorbonne in Paris.

Liberté was born and raised in Los Angeles and grew up as a competitive figure skater and was nationally ranked in both singles and pairs. She enjoys spending time with her dogs, hiking and taking them to area dog parks. She is a self-proclaimed exercise addict and spends at least six days a week spinning or practicing yoga.
