Here's the "official" bio:
Edie Lambert anchors the 5, 6:30 and 11 p.m. newscasts on KCRA-TV. She is a very familiar and well respected journalist in Northern California.
She covered hundreds of stories in the Sacramento region as a general assignment reporter. Highlights of her career include an interview with President Barack Obama, part of which aired on NBC Nightly News, an interview with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, covering the Scott Peterson murder trial gavel-to-gavel for KCRA and MSNBC's The Abrams Report, and providing people with critical information during many major natural disasters, including flooding across our region, wildfires across our state, and earthquakes along the West Coast.
She has covered many major breaking news stories for both KCRA-TV and NBC News Channel.
Edie won a regional Emmy for a documentary on breast cancer, and she has been nominated for Emmy awards five times. Early in her career, she received Associated Press citations for several stories ranging from wildfires to politics.
Before she moved to KCRA 3, Edie worked in Santa Barbara at KEYT-TV.
Edie holds a degree in political science from the University of California at Santa Barbara. While in college, she landed her first paid job in journalism as an anchor and reporter for KTMS-FM, a news/talk format radio station.
During her childhood, she lived in many parts of the world as her marine biologist parents traveled for their research projects, including Japan, Bermuda, Hawaii, Sweden and France.
She volunteers for many non-profit organizations, including a domestic violence shelter and a breast cancer research and education organization. She also serves on the board of directors of the Sacramento Press Club, and her role co-chairing the scholarship program gives her a chance to help the next generation of journalists. Among her favorite volunteer projects is reading to local children to promote literacy.
In her spare time, Edie enjoys yoga, gardening, and hiking in the many beautiful areas of Northern California.
Edie and her husband reside in Sacramento with their daughter and an ever-evolving number of rescue animals.Read more: http://www.kcra.com/tv/news-team/KCRA-3-News-Anchor/-/11799122/13404572/-/hjynd3/-/index.html#ixzz2jqovNzGB
