Introduction :

Lisa Villegas is a Latin-American meteorologist who was famously let go from the station CBS11. As of 2020, she is the Chief Meteorologist at Q13 News in Seattle, Washington.

Personal Life : Family & Education

  • Lisa Villegas was born June 11th, 1987, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to parents Cheryl Villegas, a retired school teacher, and Joe Villegas, a retired Air Force vet and a retired international pilot (with the rank of captain) at US Airways.
  • She has a brother, Alex Villegas.
  • Lisa was raised in Pittsburgh and initially dreamed of one day becoming a ballerina.
  • After graduating from high school in Pittsburgh, Lisa relocated to Daytona Beach, Florida, where she attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University from 2006 to 2010.
  • Over the years, Villegas has lived in Lafayette (Louisiana), Weslaco (Texas), Fort Worth (Texas), and Tucson (Arizona).
  • She now resides in Seattle, Washington. She loved living in Arizona but has stated that she loves the weather in Seattle, even the rain. With Seattle being in the Northwest, it reminds Lisa more of her Northeast upbringing.

Profession, Salary & Net Worth :

  • After graduating from university, Lisa moved to Lafayette, Louisiana, where she worked as a weekend meteorologist at KLFY-TV from 2010 to 2011.
  • Covering ‘Tropical Storm Lee’ in 2011, all by herself, was one of the highlights of Lisa’s early career.
  • From 2011 to 2014, Lisa was a weekday morning meteorologist at KRGV-TV in Weslaco, Texas.
  • She then moved to the Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas, where she initially worked as a weekend morning meteorologist for CBS News from 2014 to 2015, then as a weekend morning meteorologist from September 2015 to October 2017.
  • In October 2017, Lisa relocated to Tucson in Arizona, where she was hired as a chief meteorologist at KOLD/KMSB-TV. She was there until September 2020.
  • On October 7th, 2020, Lisa started her current job as a chief meteorologist at Q13 News (part of the Fox Network) in Seattle, Washington. She is set to predict a lot of rain!
  • Some controversy occurred in 2017 when CBS News announced that Lisa would no longer be employed with them. Either party never disclosed the reason, but the rumor mill suggested that this may have had something to do with some photos on Lisa’s social media in which she wore a low-cut dress for a night out with her friends. She had been given a warning for another photograph posted earlier that same year. Viewers found the timing of Lisa’s termination suspicious.

Personal Images & Controversy :

  • As a young, beautiful woman, Lisa has attracted some criticism for her looks. While she initially thought her looks would be a negative for her career, she eventually won over crowds with her personality.
  • When she was let go from CBS11, it was rumored that this was due to the hot images she had posted to her social media accounts.
  • In 2016, after a night out on the town with two of her girlfriends, Lisa posted a photo of them to her Instagram account that showed her in a form-fitting, low cut mini dress.
  • CBS11 felt that the photo did not fit their image as a station, and as she posted news and weather reports from the station from the same account, consequently, they demanded that she remove the picture.
  • The image was removed within 48 hours, but it reportedly started in-fighting between Lisa and the executives. The saga ultimately ended with Lisa leaving the network.

  3. Hi Lisa, thank you for bringing excellent forecasting to Tucson. I look forward to seeing and hearing you. Hugs and kisses. Mark

  4. Dear LISA,
    You are beautiful and have a great personality. You are my weather girl (person) of choice. I am so happy you are in Tucson and with KOLD TV13. Please stick around until you go national with CBS, ABC, or NBC. I used to watch ERIN CHRISTENSEN until she moved to FL because she too is as beautiful and folksy as you are. Plus, you know your weather.

    I love BROOKE WAGNER too. She is a wonderful addition too to KOLD TV13. You two make a great pair…and I am one of your most loyal viewers. Say hi to her from me.

    A big hug to you both from me.

    DAN, you are good too…not beautiful…just handsome.

    1. I couldn’t find a spot to say welcome to Lisa Villegas to Channel 13 because I’m not very tech-savvy, but she is following in the footsteps of Walter Kelly who is greatly missed. Although his departure seemed untimely, I’m excited to hear the new chief meteorologist do her job and keep everyone a little safer in this violent weather environment we sometimes can live in.

      Welcome again Lisa to Seattle looking forward to many years of your weather forecast as I did with Walter Kelly

  5. Lisa Robertson love her as our weather girl I don’t miss her weather forecast she is awesome won’t listen to anybody else now what a great asset to Tucson love you Lisa

  6. Great job on weather and local topics of interest Lisa. Please continue to keep all of your reporting non-partisan.

  7. I stay in Tucson 4 to 5 months out of the year each winter and I never really warmed to any of the local News channels until I happened to catch Lisa’s weather report one night. Now I tune in everyday to get the weather and a AU Wildcat update. Thanks for bringing Lisa to Tucson. She gets around town with personal appearances like going to Old Tucson recently and her bubbly personality and big smile are very enjoyable when catching up with her accurate weather reporting!
    Sure hope Lisa is here in Tucson to stay

  8. I am in awe of your professionalism. You will do well in your career. I watch your show more than any other.

    1. Janice Gutierrez

      You make the Weather Reports Super fun!
      You are Really Sweet and Charming

      You bring a lot to the Old Pueblo
      Hope KOLD is your permanent home and career choice!

      Ole!

  9. Lisa does her job and does it well. A person who is healthy, fit and looks good and projects confidence. The storytelling has evolved in meteorology in recent years. For goodness sake‘s, it’s Tucson. Personality is welcome. Work hard, have fun

  10. Lisa does such a GREAT job reporting the Tucson weather, with her looks and her On Air personality. I only wish that Lisa would be there during the weekend….I miss not seeing her everyday.

  11. Lisa was great lady doing the weather in Dallas-Ft. worth and continued doing a great job in Tucson… You have a fan FOREVER!

  12. This is the best thing happing to KOLD hiring Lisa. I now watch KOLD she is very professional at her work. It’s not her fault she is a very attractivene woman since Heather Role. Her weather is always right on the money you can trust her to do a grate job. KOLD has the best Ankermans and crew like Dan marries & Brook Wagner can’t forget the old man Bud Foster long timer grate reporter. Keep Up the good work You”all

  13. Lisa my household loves your weather reporting. Your informative and always professional. Welcome to Tucson I hope you love your new home at KOLD

  14. She is an excellent meteorologist and brings a personality to KOLD that was never there before. I hope she stays in the Tucson area.

  15. Great job with weather. Some folks are intimidated by an attractive woman… Their problem. Keep up the good work.

  16. Well, as for the “news” portion of the “show”…Lisa is refreshing and informative. She doesn’t need to go through antics with her hands and silly remarks. Looks great and gets on with the information. I was in the news “business” during the late 60’s and early 70’s. Weather took less than a minute to provide the viewers, in some cases maybe 30 sec.more if a threat existed. Now, let’s get the “talent” and the”producers” to get back to providing coverage that affects the general population. Okay, a few shootings and a car wreck is okay, but let’s hear about what our local government is doing about our roads, schools and taxes. I do not care to watch “national feeds” about someone hanging over a bridge in Ohio. There’s too much important “news” that Pima County residence should be aware of and need to hear. Please bring make journalism and leave the comedy stuff to the “Late Night Politicians.

  17. SHANNON E MACKLER

    Lisa – ever since you arrived on Channel 13, there has been a climate change on the weather report – now it’s HOT !!

  18. Lisa… You are doing a wonderful job here in Southern Arizona and we are happy you’re here. My daughter and I watch you and I am always happy to see intelligent, professional women on television, hopefully inspiring younger generations of girls to achieve their own career dreams.

  19. I think Lisa is not good at reporting the weather and she seem to be very full of her self. Please act more professional.
