Liz Koh is a proud second-generation Korean-American. Her parents immigrated to the U.S. from South Korea. Her parents taught her to speak Korean and English while growing up.
Liz moved to Baton Rouge just before the August 2016 flood. Her second story ever at WAFB was wall-to-wall (nonstop) live coverage as the flood began. On her second day of work at Channel 9, she and her photographer James Degraauw became stuck on I-12 while heading to a shelter to cover flood recovery operations. Despite getting trapped on a flooded interstate, Liz says she wouldn't change a thing about her experience. During our continuous flood coverage in the days and weeks to come, she met many viewers who showed strength, empathy and the willingness to help others in a time of need. Since then Baton Rouge has become home to her.
In May 2020, Liz took on the challenge of anchoring the 4 p.m. newscast. Although she hated leaving the 9News This Morning family, she is excited to see where the new journey will take her.
Liz has a heart for the people who make the Red Stick a better place to be - the creators, artists, makers and community leaders. Liz also adopted her sweet puppy Beau here after a coworker found him abandoned in the WAFB parking lot.
In her free time, Liz enjoys hiking, snowboarding and scrapbooking. She also loves to eat and try out unique local spots. Say hi if you see her around!
