TV PERSONALITY NEWS REPORTER JOURNALIST
Lemor Abrams is an award-winning news reporter born and raised in Southern California.
Growing up, she always looked up to local evening newscasters who were always on during and after dinner; but her love for storytelling expanded after a major natural disaster shook her community, and put her San Fernando Valley neighborhood on the news.
The Northridge Earthquake of 1994 came too close to home. Lemor couldn’t watch the news because the massive quake toppled buildings and knocked out power, but a different lightbulb went off. Lemor was enlightened by the many heartbreaking stories happening in her very own backyard, and by the reporters telling those stories. For the first time, Lemor witnessed first hand how reporters gather stories by knocking on doors and documenting history for the world to see.
Lemor was set on turning her interest in news-gathering and storytelling into a career. She became a reporter for her college news station, Bruin News29, and simultaneously began interning at CBS2 News in Los Angeles. An internship led to a production job, and Lemor had the chance to work side by side with the very journalists she grew up watching both on TV and in her backyard after the quake.
Lemor is now covering the tragedy, destruction, crime, and everyday struggles happening in Central California. Previously, Lemor reported for the NBC station in Reno-KRNV, where cold weather was exciting for a change!
Lemor is a proud UCLA graduate and a graduate of El Camino High School. When she is not reporting for the 5p.m., 6p.m, and 11p.m newscasts, you can find Lemor working out in the beautiful California sunshine, or loading up on the freshest fruits and veggies at her nearest farmer’s market.
Lemor is fluent in Hebrew, and is currently working on her Spanish-speaking skills.
