Anchor

Laura Diaz

Laura Diaz is an award–winning television news anchor and reporter. She anchors the newscasts on Studio 11 LA at 5pm and reports on special news projects. Laura is thrilled to be reunited with so many dear friends, colleagues and former competitors after she joined FOX owned KTTV and KCOP in Los Angeles in May 2012.

Diaz is one of the most familiar and honored journalists in Southern California. For more than two decades, she has  anchored, reported and produced for several flagship Los Angeles stations. She is a 14-time Emmy Award Winner.

After brief reporting assignments in San Luis Obispo and Fresno fresh out of college, Laura returned home to Southern California to KABC. Her path took her from the Orange County Bureau where she began as a reporter to the highest-ranking position for an anchor at that station's headquarters in Hollywood.

After an amazing winning streak at KABC, Diaz jumped  to KCBS as lead anchor with a special emphasis on specials and mini documentaries. At KCBS, Laura received the L.A.  Press Club's highest honor, the "Joseph M. Quinn Award" for journalistic excellence and distinction. She and her team also took home the prestigious national Imagen Award for Best Local Information Program. Her special series on undercover ATF Agent Billy Queen, who penetrated a notorious motorcycle gang, earned her back to back honors, with a Golden Mike and a local Emmy. In 2006, KCBS posted first place for the first time in more than thirty years with Diaz and fellow teammates anchoring the centerpiece broadcast.

Laura currently sits on the advisory board of "The Joyful Child Foundation", started by children's advocate Erin Runnion. She is also a member of the Pasadena Playhouse Diversity Committee.

Diaz was born in Santa Paula and raised in Santa Clarita. She graduated from William S. Hart High School and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

In her spare time, Laura enjoys running, weight training, rooting for the local sports teams the Dodgers, Lakers, and Angels!
