Lemor Abrams is a multi-skilled journalist for KFMB-TV in San Diego, California.
“As the daughter of a Rabbi, I knew I wanted to set out on a life path that involved giving back to the community. As a reporter, I could get to know the community’s needs and find meaning in sharing important stories. I’m extremely grateful I get the opportunity to do just that so close to where I grew up in Southern California.”
Lemor is an Emmy-Award winning journalist, joining NEWS 8’s evening team after covering politics for CBS News in California’s Capitol. Prior to her work in Sacramento, Lemor worked at the CBS affiliate in the state’s agriculture Capitol, Fresno. That’s where she reported on everything from the region’s farm production to the 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. 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 for stories as a reporter for the college news station: Bruin News 29. That’s where she landed her first-ever interview with, of all people, a Jewish Soviet Dissident named Natan Sharansky.
Lemor was born in West Hills, California as the youngest of five children. Now she has a young son of her own.
She and her husband love to take their little guy out on the town. From hikes to beach picnics to new restaurants, they’re always looking for some fun in the San Diego sun.
