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 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.
