Lisa Coles Guerrero (born April 8, 1964) 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.


Early years

Guerrero was born in Chicago, Illinois, the daughter of Walter Coles and Lucy Guerrero. Her 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.


Guerrero began her show-business career in the 1980s as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Rams. After being a cheerleader for the Rams, she moved on to be the entertainment director for the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. Later, in the 1990s, she moved on to star in Aaron Spelling's "Sunset Beach". In 1997, she became a sports-anchor on Los Angeles' KCBS station and later KTTV station.

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.

In December 2005, the then 41-year old Guerrero posed nude for the January 2006 issue of "Playboy". cite web| url= |title=Playboy Magazine Cover - January 2006 - Lisa Guerrero| publisher=Playboy| date=2006-01| accessdate=2008-08-10] After her pictorial, Guerrero said that Playboy had asked her to pose for the magazine in the mid-1980s but as a young model it felt like crossing the line. cite web| url=| title=Guerrero on her Playboy shoot, MNF and Anna Benson| author=Andrew Lawrence| publisher=Sports Illustrated| date=2005-12-07| quote=I had done swimwear posters and certainly modeled before, but the thought of doing Playboy was just crossing the line. But every couple of years after that, I would come across somebody from Playboy asking me to pose...I just never felt like it was the right thing for me to do. I had a real strong desire to cover sports. And it seems like the more recognition I got in sports, the more Playboy kept coming back to me and said, "Hey, do you want to do the cover now?" wasn't right for me and I thought it would be something that I wouldn't feel good about... [but] At every point in our lives, as we have experiences and get older and develop a sense of humor about things, we change our opinion. I've become older and wiser and found, through my life experience, that different opinions that I have held -- pretty dearly -- have changed.| accessdate=2008-08-10] It was said director Michael Lesner had discouraged her from doing it at that time.

On June 15, 2006, Guerrero became a correspondent on the TV newsmagazine "Inside Edition". Guerrero also became the co-host of VH1's game show "The World Series of Pop Culture". 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.

On October 6, 2008, Guerrero referred to Sarah Palin as a "monkey" on her blog. She said "All in all it’s been a rough few days for the monkeys. On Friday night, the Angels’ Rally Monkey let down the home crowd in Anaheim. Although the team triumphed Sunday night in Boston, you can’t credit the monkey unless he sneaked into Jared Weaver’s suitcase. On Saturday, John McCain’s rally monkey, Sarah Palin, popped up in Carson. Fresh off of her victory over herself at the debate, her campaign let Palin out of the cage to rev up the fan base."
