Elizabeth is returning to her hometown of Tulsa. She graduated from Edison High School and Tulsa University, cheering for the Golden Hurricane. She left Tulsa to begin her journalism career in Bend, Oregon in 2001.
“I wanted to work for 2Works for You because this was the station I watched growing up,” says Elizabeth. “But also I love the sense of community and what they do to help people and solve problems.”
Elizabeth won the Emmy award for “Best Newscast” and was nominated for a best “On-Camera Talent” Emmy in the Anchor category. She was also nominated for Human Interest reporting. She is a 2013 California State Assembly “Woman of Distinction”. In addition, she received an AP award for her in-depth reporting on a murder investigation near Monroe, La.
“We are thrilled to welcome Libby home to Tulsa,” said 2Works for You Vice President and General Manager Donna Wilson. “Her journalistic skills and personal integrity are a benefit to our community.”
