Lemor Abrams is a multi-skilled journalist for KFMB-TV in San Diego, California.
As the daughter of a Rabbi, she says, “I wanted to set out on a life path that involved giving back to the community. Becoming a reporter allowed me to get to know communities of all walks of life and find meaning in sharing their stories.”
Lemor is an Emmy-Award winning journalist, joining NEWS 8’s evening team after covering politics for CBS News in California’s Capital. Prior to her work in Sacramento, Lemor worked at the CBS affiliate in the state’s agriculture Capital, Fresno. That’s where she reported on everything from the region’s farm production to a local woodworker making toys for sick children (a story that won Lemor her first Emmy!). She had come a long way since covering the snow in her first news market, Reno, NV. But it’s also where she broke her first big story about a county employee embezzling millions of dollars from taxpayers just as the recession hit. It was an exciting accomplishment for an amateur reporter just out of college.
Lemor is a proud Bruin! She graduated from UCLA with a degree in political science and a minor in media. When she wasn’t in class, Lemor worked as a production assistant at L.A.’s duopoly - KCBS2/KCAL9 News. When she wasn’t collating scripts, she was digging up stories as a reporter for the college news station, Bruin News 29. That’s where she landed her first-ever interview with Jewish Soviet Dissident Natan Sharansky.
Lemor was born in West Hills, California as the youngest of five children. As the daughter of a Rabbi, she says, “I wanted to set out on a life path that involved giving back to the community. Becoming a reporter allowed me to get to know communities of all walks of life and find meaning in sharing their stories.”
Lemor and her husband say they’re grateful to get to raise their two boys in beautiful San Diego. When she’s not working, they’re out doing anything involving the outdoors from exploring new hiking trails and beaches to dining out on the town!
