Biography

Lisa Coles Guerrero (born April 8, 1964 in Chicago, Illinois), is an American sports broadcaster, actress, host and model. Although she mostly uses Guerrero, her late mother's maiden name, she also is sometimes credited as Lisa Coles, her father's surname.

Lisa Guerrero was born in the city of Chicago in 1964 to Walter Coles and Lucy Guerrero. Lisa's mother was from Chile. Guerrero spent her childhood living in San Diego and Huntington Beach, California. In 1972, when Lisa was 8 years old, her mother died. To cope with the loss, her father enrolled her in theater therapy. Her father ran a family business and her grandparents were involved in The Salvation Army.

In 1999, she moved to the Fox Network, where she participated in such shows as Sports Geniuses, Fox Overtime, Fox Extra Innings and the Toughman competition shows. She travelled to Egypt to tape the special Opening the Tombs of the Golden Mummies. Guerrero also starred in the San Diego Chargers magazine-style television show. She also co-hosted The Best Damn Sports Show Period, alongside Tom Arnold and Michael Irvin, among others.

In 2003, she left The Best Damn Sports Show Period to join ABC's Monday Night Football television crew. Her performance on the broadcast was heavily criticized. She defended herself by saying that the show hired her with the intention of going in a totally different direction with the job of sideline reporter — personality-driven and feature-driven — then discarded all of that and told her to just do the job in the usual fashion. She said that she never would have taken the job if she had known that they would change their minds like that. The following year ABC replaced her with Michele Tafoya.

The Los Angeles Times has called Guerrero, the hardest working sports reporter. The Hispanic Business Journal named her one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in America. On February 3, 2004 Guerrero married professional baseball pitcher Scott Erickson.

Since Guerrero's arrival at Inside Edition, the show's ratings went up 17 percent. In February 2007, Inside Edition viewers got the chance to dress Guerrero up for the 79th Academy Awards. Viewers voted online to choose what Guerrero will wear to the show.
