  3. How did you decide to be a reporter/anchor? I kept talking out loud and no one was listening—This way, people are forced to listen and I get paid. But if you must know—my oldest brother (Dave Lopez) started in L.A. TV News when I was super young, so I grew up watching him and thought it would be an interesting profession.
