If you ever meet people who talk about a meteorologist from the Philippines who works as a news anchor for ABC’s KTRK TV in Houston, Texas, they refer to Elita Loresca.
The Filipino-American newscaster may not be one of the scientists who has studied meteorology in-depth, but she is certainly one of the best journalists who broadcast weather forecasts understandably and effectively that appeals to the target audience. You would not watch her show without understanding what she is talking about.
On several occasions, Elita has been praised and admired for her journalistic commitment. Among other things, she received recognition for her coverage of two of the most devastating hurricane seasons in recent history, which ABC described as such. When Loresca began working for Fox television station WSVN in Miami, Florida, in 2004, she immediately began predicting and informing people about Hurricane France, which eventually became the second most powerful tropical storm of the year in the Atlantic. Frances was overly destructive, especially in Florida, and it is believed that the way Elita Loresca predicted the hurricane made people aware of the hurricane and eventually put their safety first.
The following year, she again ensured people’s safety when Hurricane Katrina, Rita, and Wilma hit. It is said that she dutifully followed the National Hurricane Center’s tracking of the hurricanes to provide her station with useful and up-to-date information that would be valuable to the public.
KTRK-TV and WSVN are not the only media Loresca worked for. Before joining Fox Television in Miami, she worked as a morning and lunchtime weathercaster for CBS television station KGPE-TV in Fresno, California. Before that, from August 2002 to August 2004, she also held a similar position at KGET-TV, an NBC affiliate in Bakersfield, California, from January 2001 to August 2002.
Before joining the ABC-13 Eyewitness News Accuweather team at ABC-13 in Houston, Elita was also a member of NBC’s television program KBNC – “Today in LA”.
