Having already established herself as a notable entertainment personality, Liz Hernandez, joined E! News as a correspondent and as the host of E! News Now in 2011.
Prior to coming to E!, Liz served as the long-time radio co-host of the #1 rated and nationally syndicated morning show, Big Boy’s Neighborhood, on Los Angeles’ influential Power 106 FM. It was there that she was called “The Queen of Entertainment News” for her daily “This Just Handed To Me” segment, in which she covered everything from award shows and red carpet events, to one-on-one interviews with Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Kanye West, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Jay-Z, Will Smith, and just about anyone else you can think of.
The youngest of four girls, Liz was born and raised in Southern California, where she went on to attend University of San Diego, and eventually got her start in the radio business after landing an internship with a local radio station. After receiving a B.A. in both Communications and Psychology, and having realized her natural talent for radio broadcasting, Liz’s career path into entertainment soon became imminent.
While providing the celebrity news for LA’s Power 106 FM, it was Liz’s quick-witted charm and genuine spirit that made her so appealing to listeners, and soon had MTV taking notice. In 2007, she also began working as a correspondent for MTV News, which only further solidified her passion for entertainment reporting.
Liz has appeared as herself in numerous television shows, including HBO’s Entourage. She also co-hosted California’s Make Me A Millionaire in 2009 and was part of a national Coors Light campaign in 2010.
Along with her corresponding duties at E! Entertainment, Liz was recently introduced as the new radio co-host of the nationally syndicated morning show, Valentine in the Morning, on Los Angeles’ #1 rated station 1043MyFM.
Liz has been recognized by the National Hispanic Media Coalition for excellence in radio broadcasting.
