Chief Investigative Correspondent
Award-winning journalist, Lisa Guerrero, is one of the most popular and hard-working personalities on television. As the chief investigative correspondent for INSIDE EDITION, America’s top-rated syndicated newsmagazine show, she travels the country covering crimes, scams, cold cases and consumer reports. Her brand of tough, confrontational reporting has made her a fan favorite and she has won eight National Headliner Awards, twice for “Best Consumer Reporting,” five times for “Best Investigative Report” and once for “Best In Show.”
Aside from the over 3.6 million viewers that tune into INSIDE EDITION each night, in the past year, Guerrero’s investigations have racked up an additional 200 million views on YouTube. Guerrero joined INSIDE EDITION in 2006 as the West Coast correspondent covering breaking news, human interest stories and the entertainment industry.
Guerrero's reports have helped solve dozens of crimes and put criminals behind bars, they’ve changed legislation and company policies across the country and helped to shine a light on human sex trafficking, child abuse and cold case murders. She has also revealed to the public hundreds of scam artists, dirty politicians, cheaters and crooks. Her investigations have been profiled in Newsweek, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
Guerrero currently hosts A&E’s “Secrets of Playboy.” This is her second season hosting the smash hit show, which has recently won a Critics Choice Award.
Most recently, Guerrero was honored with two Clarion Awards by the Association for Women in Communications for an investigation that revealed toxic heavy metals in facial mud masks and an investigation into hazing related deaths in fraternities, sharing devastating stories from parents who have lost a son. She has previously won multiple other Clarion Awards, including honors for her work on an investigation that exposed a prosperous tax-exempt church for using a government PPP loan to buy a multi-million dollar jet; an interview with preacher Kenneth Copeland about his use of private jets, which went viral worldwide and was seen by over half a billion people; her report on adoption fraud; and her investigative series titled, “This House Is Watching You.”
Guerrero was also one of the first journalists to set foot on Jeffrey Epstein’s private island after his arrest on sex trafficking charges.
In 2023, Lisa’s memoir, Warrior: My Path to Being Brave, was released and became an instant Amazon bestseller. It was critically acclaimed, and her book tour was a smashing success leading to features in People Magazine, Sports Illustrated, and TV interviews with Christiane Amanpour on CNN, CBS Mornings, The Talk, The Drew Barrymore Show, and with our own Deborah Norville. Warrior is now being developed into a TV series.
Guerrero is also a popular keynote speaker whose platform, “Being Brave,” motivates a wide range of audiences from corporate seminars to women’s organizations to youth groups, with the tools to unleash their inner courage by learning her “4 Steps To Being Brave.”

She has broadcast from seven Super Bowls, five World Series and four NBA national championship games as well as the World Figure Skating championships. In 2003, She was the sideline reporter for ABC’s Monday Night Football and Al Michaels called the ratings increase that season “the Guerrero factor.”
