SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) — Elizabeth Cook has been named co-anchor for the 11pm news on KPIX 5, effective immediately.

She will also co-anchor the Monday-through-Friday 5 and 6 p.m. newscasts with Allen Martin, as well as the 10 p.m. news on sister station KBCW (The CW 44/Cable 12) with Ken Bastida.

Cook has been filling in as co-anchor of the late newscasts since Dana King departed in December 2012 to pursue her art career.

Cook has been co-anchor of KPIX News at 5 p.m. with Allen Martin and a general assignment reporter since March 2011.

She is a seven-time Emmy winner and two- time Edward R. Murrow Award recipient. She also received a Nor Cal RTNDA award in 2012. Cook began her career in Palm Springs, where she was a reporter, morning anchor and then the primary evening anchor for the NBC affiliate, KMIR-TV. She covered various events that attracted national attention, including the death of President Gerald Ford, the Sawtooth Complex Fires and the Black Friday Toys R Us shooting.

“Since joining KPIX, Liz Cook has shown herself to be a first-rate broadcast journalist – diligent, insightful, and responsive to Bay Area news viewers. We are thrilled that she will be taking on this important new responsibility,” said Dan Rosenheim, KPIX 5 Vice President and News Director.

Cook graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in broadcast journalism.
