Lisa McCubbin is an award-winning journalist. As the Live Reporter for both the CBS and ABC affiliates, she was adept at covering everything from education to sports to politics and was eventually chosen to host Bakersfield’s most watched morning news program, as co-anchor of NBC’s Sunrise, the two-hour show prior to Today with Katie Couric and Matt Lauer. During the 2000 election, she landed an exclusive one-on-one interview with then Governor George W. Bush, and covered the election through the Florida voting debacle. In the aftermath of the attacks on 9/11, McCubbin provided compelling reports to KGET-TV (NBC) as a foreign correspondent in Saudi Arabia. Later, as the Saudi government came under increasing Western media scrutiny, the Saudi Minister of Foreign Investment hired Lisa McCubbin as a media consultant to train leading business people and members of the Saudi government to deal with the Western press. She currently splits her time between the Middle East and Colorado with her husband and two teenaged sons.
