Journalist Lisa Guerrero:
“The work that I had on camera, and also my old journals, told me what I had gone through was traumatic and serious, and I don’t want any other women to ever go through what I experienced back then 30 years ago, 20 years ago, 10 years ago, even a few years ago. That was the impetus to get my story on paper and to write it the way that it’s written now…”
In this new episode of The Women’s Eye podcast with Stacey Gualandi, I talk with author and journalist Lisa Guerrero, the multi-award winning chief investigative correspondent for the television program Inside Edition.
As a former member of the Inside Edition sisterhood–and a friend for over 15 years–I am very happy to share her honest and very brave memoir with you!
Guerrero has had an extraordinary career. She’s gone from NFL cheerleader to sports journalist to co-host of Best Damn Sports Show to her ultimate dream job—Monday Night Football sideline reporter. Now, a storyteller by trade, she adds author to her long list of credits with Warrior: My Path to Being Brave.
In Warrior, Guerrero candidly reveals how she dealt with her mother Lucy’s untimely death; faced unique obstacles as a woman in sports that her male colleagues did not; made a mistake on an international scale that led to depression and thoughts of suicide; and how she resurrected her career by turning pain into power.
“Anybody watching this right now, we all have an inner warrior, and we all have bravery. We just need to be able to unleash it and exercise it. I believe bravery is like a muscle: the more you use it, the stronger you become. My book talks about that as well–the ways that you can become more brave,” says Guerrero.
