Liz Flynn was happy to trade her snow shovel for sunglasses when she moved to warm, sunny Savannah. A South Florida "semi-native," she's spent the first six years of her television news career in bitterly cold climates. She came to WTOC from Rockford, Illinois where she was the morning news anchor at WTVO. She started her career at WTOC's sister station, WLUC, in Marquette, Michigan. As one of their main news anchors, she lugged a camera through more than 20 feet of snow to seek out the news of the day. Some of Liz's most vivid memories are serving as master of ceremonies for a sled dog race during a blizzard and coming home to find a giant icicle had broken a five foot hole through her living room window!
Liz has a Bachelor of Science degree from Oral Roberts University, where she studied journalism and political science. Since her early teens, she's been interested in news. Before she got into television, she worked for the city of Coral Springs, Florida in media relations. She even had her own radio show in South Florida when she was 14 years old.
You can see Liz anchoring THE News at Six, Seven and Eleven on Saturdays and Sundays and reporting during the week.
Liz says Savannah is the most beautiful and satisfying place she has ever lived. Since coming to WTOC, she's had the opportunity to do many exciting things, including cover the President and Vice President, meet former President Jimmy Carter, commandeer a tugboat down the Savannah River, and her personal favorite, pull 7.4Gs while flying with the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels!
Liz makes her home on Whitemarsh Island with her cat, Java. When she's not at work, Liz enjoys lounging on her deck, traveling, spending time with friends, redecorating, studying foreign languages, reading, and consuming large quantities of coffee.
