   About Liz Adeola

Host/Story Producer

Liz Adeola

Liz Adeola is the Host/Story Producer of This Is Utah. She is excited to call Salt Lake City home after moving to five different states to climb the news ladder as a reporter and anchor. Liz is a storyteller at heart who loves to listen and learn about people’s journey through life.

Liz has more than a decade worth of experience working in newsrooms across the country and traveled from one end to the other interviewing people for the documentary 14 Days In America - the Face of Freedom Project. She was nominated for a Breaking News Emmy for coverage of a fatal school bus crash that claimed the life of a beloved elementary school teacher and most recently earned an award from the Society of Professional Journalists for covering issues regarding children. Liz moved to Utah from Indiana for the opportunity to tell rich, character-driven stories in the place where she’s originally from — the desert Southwest. Liz attended the Walter Cronkite School of Broadcast Journalism at Arizona State University, where she studied Broadcast Journalism and Political Science and learned a few tips from the broadcast legend himself, Walter Cronkite.
