Liberte Chan Biography, Age
The beautiful and gorgeous reporter was born in Los Angeles, the United States, to a Caucasian father and a Chinese mother. She grew up with her two elder brothers, whom she is very close with, in a cross-cultural family. Growing up, she was very close to her mother which made her even more aware of her mixed heritage at an early age.
That, however, was not an issue to her as she embraced both cultural traditions and practiced them from a young age. Her ethnic group is Asian-American and she belongs to Asian-white ethnicity. She is a follower of Christianity religion.
Despite being a shy child, she was a figure skater and competed nationally and internationally both in singles and pairs. She said she found it easy to skate and perform in front of a crowd of people, but the thought of speaking in front of a crowd was terrifying.
We would have loved to let you in on her early life, but the details are not available. However, we do know that she completed her early education at Marlborough School for Girls and graduated in 1998. Her actual date of birth is not known and her age cannot be ascertained owing to her youthful looks and stunning personality. Nevertheless, it can be well assumed she is in her late thirties or early forties.
Added to her poise and beauty, she loves learning, is well educated and seemingly overread for her present job. Liberte obtained a Bachelor Degree in Journalism from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst and an additional certification in broadcast journalism from UCLA. She spent her last semester abroad at Sorbonne in Paris, France, thanks to her early finish from college.
With a dream to be a health reporter, she enrolled in USC’s Keck School of Medicine and obtained a masters degree in Public Health. Going further in her career, the opportunity to work on the weather wall came to her, she embraced it and quickly enrolled in an online meteorology program. After three years of studying, she received a certificate in Meteorology from Mississippi State University in August 2015.
A child who was afraid of speaking before a crowd and would rather skate and perform before them became a surprise when she chose a career in journalism.
Admittedly, she had fear of the public, but that did not deter her from pursuing her dream of working in the media. Her interest in becoming a weather girl started when she was in her teens, but her mother’s support and suggestion that she kept her options open set her moving. Liberte’s mom opined that instead of just being a weather girl, she could also be a reporter or even an anchor, and she became all of that.
During her college years, the thought that she wanted to be a writer, learn about new things and tell their stories defined her career path.
Liberte kickstarted her journalism career in 2003 by joining KTLA (where she would later work as a meteorologist), in Los Angeles as a writer. After working till 2005 during which time she covered many news and events, she joined KCOY-TV/KKFX-TV. There, she reported for Santa Barbara County on Central Coast as a general assistant reporter from 2006 to 2008.
After she left KCOY-TV/KKFX-TV, KMIR 6 News became her next port of call. She worked as a reporter and morning anchor from 2008 to 2010. Presently, Liberte is a weathercaster, news reporter, and a meteorologist for KTLA channel. She joined the channel in 2010 as a freelance writer and has been with them since then.
Apart from journalism, she is a life blogger, an inspiration she got from her job on the weather walls. Liberte is greatly admired for her grace and style of dressing which has captured many writers. On her blog, LifeOfLiberté.com, she talks fashion, shares beauty tips, decoration ideas, healthy meal and snack options, as well as inspirational quotes.
Liberte views her blog as a resource to help others navigate through their busy lives while looking and feeling their best, and she’s doing good on that.
She is apparently an animal lover who enjoys hiking. Liberte has a yellow lab, Shanti whom she spends quality time with and takes to dog parks. The shapely figured lady is a workout freak and has proclaimed herself an exercise addict. This is no joke. She spends at least six days in a week spinning and doing Yoga.
Is Liberte Chan Married, Husband, Divorce
As much as we know about her career, Liberte Chan has chosen to be discreet about her personal life, sharing only as much information she wishes with the public. She got married to the American actor, Brian Chase, in 2012. He was her only known boyfriend prior to their marriage. They exchanged their marital vows at the Greystone Mansion’s garden.
Despite the fact that the duo looked happy and seemed perfect together, they caught the headlines with news of their divorce few years after their marriage. Although neither of them mentioned anything as being the reason for their split, something as trivial as being found without a wedding ring on Brian’s finger was rumored to be the cause. Did I just say that was a trivial issue? Of course, it was not. Something that was big enough to break a marriage could be considered weighty.
