Lemor Abrams is an Emmy-Award winning news reporter, who has interviewed thousands of people, from key political figures to everyday folks who impact their community. Her very first interview was with a former political prisoner, and her most memorable story tracked the life of a five-year-old boy on his journey to beat a rare form of cancer. Lemor also reported on some major issues facing Californians, like the ongoing drought and water crisis.
Lemor’s story begins in Southern California, where she was born and raised. It’s also where she got her start in TV News, first “behind the scenes” for the CBS/KCAL duopoly in L.A., and on camera at various L.A. cable stations including Santa Monica Television, and Hawthorne City News. Lemor moved on to continue her journalism dream in Reno, NV., at the NBC affiliate KRNV, where she broke her first big story about a county employee embezzling millions of dollars from the county’s water resources department. She also had the opportunity to interview former President Bill Clinton about the country’s infrastructure, when he visited a small town that was flooded after a levee broke.
Lemor soon returned to California, but this time to another avenue of news: online news. Lemor did voice over and field producing work for Yahoo! News, and traveled up and down the West Coast for stories. From there, Lemor pursued a new general assignment reporting gig in Fresno, CA., the central part of the state also known as the world’s most fertile agriculture region. She spent a few years at CBS affiliate KGPE, which later merged with NBC affiliate KSEE, serving as lead reporter covering both station’s evening newscasts.
Lemor is a proud Bruin! She studied political science, communications, and media at the University of California, Los Angeles. She was also a reporter for the University’s television station, Bruin News 29. A school trip to Jerusalem with students from around the world broadened her perspective and appreciation for faith. It also motivated Lemor to sharpen her Hebrew, and she soon became fluent in the language. Upon her return from the Holy Land, Lemor began contributing to her family’s non-profit House of Worship in Woodland Hills, CA. At Beit Avraham, she joins volunteers cook for holidays and provide food and shelter to members of the community in need.
Lemor is also a dancer, yogi, foodie, and traveler. She has traveled all over Europe, and the Middle East, and especially loved floating in the Dead Sea, and hiking the Masada at sunrise.
Lemor is passionate about family, friends, and dogs! For now, she only has one pup named Sammy. He’s a ten-pound malti-poo rescued from a Santa Monica shelter.
Lemor is thrilled to be in Northern California, and looks forward to experiencing everything the Capitol City has to offer, including a vibrant Downtown scene, and an expanding farm-to-fork movement.
