Iris Lopez Bio

Who is Iris Lopez?

Iris Lopez works as a General Assignment Reporter and Weekend Weather Anchor for KVIA/ABC-7 in El Paso, TX. Before she worked at a radio station.

Iris Lopez Early Life

Born and raised here in El Paso, I am a proud Montwood High School Alumni! “Go Rams, Go!” Growing up my dad would always lend my older sisters and me his video camera. So that we could make our own fake newscast together for fun. My older sisters were always the lead anchors, and me being the youngest, I was stuck doing the weather. Little did I know our pretend newscasts would prepare me for my future career.

I grew up with a love and passion for music.  My dad always sang Luis Miguel love songs to my mom, and when I was in middle school I picked up his talents.  I was in choir throughout all of my school years.  Once I graduated from high school I attended El Paso Community College.

Iris Lopez Son

She has a son and goes on to say:

“I am even more blessed that I have the chance to do all of this with a little human being I proudly call my son.  To show my son that anything is possible no matter what obstacles are thrown your way is the best accomplishment I have ever achieved”.

Iris Lopez In Music

There I took music courses in hopes of pursuing a career as a professional singer.  I participated in local musicals with the El Paso Playhouse.

Shortly after my musical theatre debut in “The Fantastiks,” I became ill.  I was in and out of hospitals for about a month.  While in the hospital the only way I could keep myself entertained was by watching the local news. I watched Estela, Gary, and Dave every day and thought, “Hey, I can do that.”

 

Iris Lopez Career

Fast forward to my college years.  I graduated from UTEP (Go Miners!) in 2013 with a major in Multi-media journalism and a minor in Spanish. I participated in two internships while in college.  My first internship was with K-FOX news. I then made my way into an internship with a local radio station, 104.3 HitFM.  Once I completed that internship I was immediately offered a position as an on-air radio personality.

For 3 years I was known as Lily Lopez on the radio.  I worked graveyard and then made my way up to midday shifts with HitFM.  Although working in the radio industry was a great and fun experience, I wanted to make my way back into TV broadcasting.

 

Irish Lopez at KVIA

I was gladly offered a graduate internship with ABC-7/KVIA and 2 weeks into the internship I was offered a part-time position as a weekend reporter.  For 6 months I was working with the radio station during the week and KVIA during the weekends.  After 7 months with KVIA, I was finally offered a full-time position as a weekend weather anchor and weekday news reporter.

I am truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to make 2 of my childhood dreams come true.  Working for a radio station I grew up listening to, and now working with the #1 news station in the city!

Irish Lopez Trivia

When I’m not talking about the weather or reporting news stories, you can find me making YouTube videos with my son. Singing with a cup, auditioning for “The Voice” whenever I get the chance to.

Away from that, also obsessing over Bruno Mars and Michael Jackson!
