Who is Lisa Guerrero?
Lisa Guerrero is a sportscaster, investigative journalist, model, and host. Lisa Guerrero has worked for the American syndicated magazine Inside Edition since 2006. She used to do acting jobs in addition to her journalistic and anchoring responsibilities.
Lisa worked for Fox Sports, CBS, and ABC on Sports Geniuses, The Best Damn Sports Show Period, and Monday Night Football before joining Inside Edition.
Early Life, Parents, and Education
Lisa Guerrero was born on April 9, 1964, in Chicago, Illinois, United States of America.
Her mother’s name is Lucy Guerrero, and her father’s name is Walter Coles.
Her father was an American of English origin, while her mother was from Chile, according to the same article.
This practically means Lisa is of mixed ancestry, with English ancestors and Hispanic ancestors on her father’s side and Hispanic ancestors on her mother’s side.
Her family most likely relocated from Chicago to San Diego, California, where she spent the majority of her youth. In addition, she spent some time in Huntington Beach, California.
She had to lose her mother when she was a child. Lisa’s mother, Lucy, died of lymphoma cancer when she was eight years old. At the time, her mother was 29 years old.
Her father decided to put her in theatrical therapy to help her cope with the loss of her mother.
Perhaps it was here that she developed an interest in the performing arts and sharpened her acting and performance talents in front of an audience.
There is no formal information on her academic qualifications or the college she attended when it comes to her education.
However, because she is an investigative journalist and has been for the majority of her professional career, one might conclude she has had some journalism schooling.
Age, Height, and Body Measurements
Lisa Guerrero will be 58 years old in 2022, according to her age. She was born under the sign of the Ram.
The correspondent is 1.73 meters tall, or 5 feet 8 inches tall.
She has been featured on the covers of many magazines, including Playboy, so that is apparently a reasonable height for a former cheerleader and model.
She has a remarkable figure of 36-29-35 inches, which must have aided her modeling career.

Lisa’s career has taken her to a variety of locations.
She began her career as a cheerleader, then moved on to acting, journalism, and sportscasting, with a little modeling thrown in for good measure.
Here, we go a little more into each of her several employment at various times in her life.
Working as an Entertainment Director and Cheerleading
In the 1980s, Lisa worked as a cheerleader. She used to be a Los Angeles Rams cheerleader.
Her talent, on the other hand, allowed her to progress from cheerleader to entertainment director. She worked for the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots as an entertainment director.
Career as an actor
Lisa chose to try her hand at acting after working as an Entertainment Director for those two teams for a while.
She made her acting debut in The George Lopez Show and The Heat of the Night as a guest star. In the 1990 episode of the show named Night of the Killing, she played Maria Cystak.
She next appeared in Matlock (TV series – 1991) and Batman Returns (Movie – 1992), portraying a Volunteer Bimbo in both. This was her first major part, and it brought her a lot of attention.
She then went on to star in Love Potion No. 9 (1992) and even had an appearance on Seinfeld in 1994.
Her most well-known acting role, however, was still to come. She was cast as Francesca Vargas’s voice in the TV show Sunset Beach in 1998.
She voiced Francesca for 127 episodes, despite the fact that it was only a voice acting part and she only worked for a year (from 1998 to 1999).
According to IMDb, she has 17 acting credits, the most recent of which was in the 2013 TV mini-series Revenge of the Goblins.
Lisa has also worked as a producer in the past. In 2007, she and her partner Scott Erikson co-produced the independent film A Plumm Summer.
Career in Sportscasting
She had already moved on to sports anchoring before she received her part in Sunset Beach.
Lisa began her career as a sports anchor on KCBS-TV in Los Angeles in 1997 and eventually moved to KTTV.
The Fox Network then hired her for another anchoring role in 1999. During her time at Fox, she worked on series like Sports Geniuses, Fox Overtime, Fox Extra Innings, and the Toughman competition events.
She also had a role in a magazine-style television show for the San Diego Chargers. Lisa also co-hosted a single edition of The Best Damn Sports Show Period in 2001.
Lisa was also given the opportunity to travel to Egypt and work in non-sports journalism. She participated in the taping of the special Opening the Tombs of the Golden Mummies when she was there.

Lisa hosted Southern California Sports Report from 2000 to 2003. She made an appearance on 210 episodes of the sports news program.
She began hosting ABC’s NFL Monday Night Football after her time at Fox Network.
She did, however, only appear in 17 episodes as a sideline reporter during her one season on the show, which ran from 2003 to 2004.
She also hosted the VH1 game show World Series of Pop Culture for eight episodes in 2006. Lisa joined CBS on July 15, 2006, to work for Inside Edition, a television news magazine.
She started as a correspondent and eventually rose to become the show’s Chief Investigative Correspondent.
She has appeared in 102 episodes of Inside Edition since joining the show, according to IMDb, with one more appearance on Inside Edition Weekend in 2019.
Journalism Achievement Awards
Her undercover expose on air duct cleaning scams earned her the National Headliner Award for Best Investigative Report in 2011.
She’s also been nominated for a Prism Award for her reporting on the dangers of alcoholism and boating, as well as a Genesis Award for her investigation into Florida horse slaughter farms.
Career as a model
Lisa is not a professional model and has never been one in the past.
Being THAT beautiful, on the other hand, has its advantages, one of which is that you don’t need to be a professional model or learn modeling to get on the cover of magazines.
This was precisely the case, as Lisa got to be a model just on her looks and fame as a reporter and a Playboy model no less.
She appeared topless in the January 2006 issue of Playboy Magazine.
And, maybe as a tribute to her or just as a play on words from her The Best Damn Sports Show Period in 2001, the cover called her The Best Damn Sports Beauty.
In addition to this highlighting feature, she has appeared in a few other Playboy magazine editions and other magazines.
Career as an Author
Writing a book is a footnote in the long list of things she has done in her career.
Her only book, Jewelry For Your Table, was published in 2016. It’s a book about creating handmade artwork for the dining table.
Married Life & Husband
Lisa Guerrero married an athlete, which isn’t that surprising considering her interest and involvement in sports broadcasting.
She married Scott Erickson, a former MLB pitcher. They tied the knot on 3 February 2004. Scott (full name – Scott Gavin Erickson) played in Major League Baseball from 1990 to 2006.
During his playing career, he played for the Minnesota twins from 1990 to 1995. Then, in 1995, he was traded to the Baltimore Orioles.
It was during his time with the Orioles that his career started taking a turn for the worse.
After spending multiple seasons on the sidelines due to elbow and shoulder injuries, in 2004, Scott signed a minor league deal with the New York Mets.
However, just after two starts, the Mets traded him to the Texas Rangers. Then, in 2005, he ended up being in the starting rotation for the Los Angeles Dodgers.
On 16 February 2006, Scott again signed a deal with the New York Yankees but was released from his contract on 19 June. He retired from professional baseball at the beginning of the 2007 season.
Back on the topic of their relationship, it is not clear whether they are together or separated. The bio on her IMDb page says that they are separated.
Similarly, his Wikipedia page, too, says that they have gotten divorced. Again, however, we could not find any official divorce date.
Social Media Presence
Her Twitter has 78.9k followers, her Instagram has 22.6k followers and her YouTube has 31.1k followers.
