Lisa Hart joined KTVI in August of 2014. Lisa is the anchor of Fox 2 news at 4am and also reports and anchors throughout the morning. Lisa Hart comes to the gateway city from KTVQ in Billings Montana where she anchored their morning news.

With family ties in the radio business, you could say Lisa Hart has been a part of the broadcast industry since birth. In fact she made her radio debut cutting a spot for a local commercial in grade school. Lisa’s father is the owner and manager of WRMJ- 102.3 FM- a local radio station in her hometown of Aledo, Illinois, where she quickly learned the business, doing everything from disc jockeying to engineering live remotes. Lisa credits her small town upbringing for the ability to relate to the average viewer.

Lisa graduated from University of Missouri in Columbia, MO where she received a Bachelor of Journalism degree. It was at Mizzou where she made the jump from radio to television. While in Columbia, she started her TV career as an anchor/reporter at KOMU-TV.

Soon after graduation, Lisa was one of the first reporters on the scene of the catastrophic EF-5 tornado that hit Joplin, Missouri, in May of 2011 and became the deadliest tornado to strike the United States since 1947. Her story, along with others, was published in the book, Joplin: Our words, Our Stories, Their Hope .

Lisa could not be more excited to be back in the Midwest close to family and friends. She is a lifelong Cardinals fan, passionate about volunteerism, and loves spending time with her dog, a Pomeranian named Gunner. Of course for Lisa, nothing beats a morning spent enjoying a great cup of coffee and having fun with the viewers at home.
