Who is KTLA 5 News weather reporter Liberte Chan?
Born on an unspecified date in the early ‘80s in Los Angeles, California USA, Liberte Chan is a weathercaster, news reporter and meteorologist of Caucasian and Asian ethnicity. She is perhaps best known for her screen time as a meteorologist on the KTLA news channel, but has had a number of other professional engagements in the news industry, across several TV channels. She has been active in the sometimes lucrative weathercasting business for more than a decade.
Early Life and Education
Liberte was born to a Caucasian father and a Chinese mother, as well as two elder brothers. It is unknown when Liberte took an interest in the profession she has today, especially considering the fact that she grew up as a competitive figure skater, who earned first places in both singles and pairs. Allegedly, at some point in her teens, Liberte told her mother that she was interested in becoming a weathercaster, but her mother insisted that she first finish her studies and then become not just a weathercaster, but also look at a few other roles similar to the said profession. Another unconfirmed belief is that Liberte used to have a fear of the public, even though she was already a figure skater who performed in front of many people on numerous occasions. Still, she chose to pursue this career in spite of her fear. As for her education, she first attended Marlborough School, from where she matriculated and went on to attend the University of Massachusetts, where she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in journalism. Later on, she also attended the University of Southern California, and graduated with a Master’s degree in health, and communications.
After her graduation Liberte sought employment, and was ultimately hired by an official of the CW-affiliate broadcast station KTLA-5, based in Los Angeles, California, in 2003. During the early years of her employment, she had the opportunity of working with Harold ‘Hal’ Fisher, a very famous late news anchor, as one of the writers for his hour-long news show entitled “News at 10”. After a few years in KTLA-5, Liberte eventually got a better work opportunity in the Central Coast of California region, at the Santa Barbara county-based KCOY-TV, affiliated with CBS; the channel was ultimately renamed into KKFX-TV, after Fox network took ownership. Around the same time, Chan got the opportunity to participate in the making of a series of news stories about the Probation Department in Santa Barbara County, and was eventually publicly recognized for her effort by the then-governor of California, Jerry Brown. As her successes in the news industry contributed to the growth of her name, she was spotted by an NBC official, and thus obtained the position of a news anchor on weekday mornings at the NBC-affiliated KMIR-TV. However, in 2010, she came back to KTLA-5, where she is still employed.

Although not many details about Liberte’s early romantic life are known, it is public knowledge that she had been dating actor and singer Brian Chase for several years before he proposed to her, and they married in 2012 at the Greystone Mansion’s garden in Beverly Hills, in an apparently luxurious ceremony. Unfortunately for the two, the marriage turned out to be a bad decision, as they filed for divorce only a few years later, on an unspecified date. As for any other partners that the celebrity may have had, until Chan herself discloses this information to the media, it remains a mystery.
What is Liberte Chan’s Net Worth?

Concerning the physical attributes of the weathercaster and news anchor, her vital statistics are not available, while various sources repute her height to be at 5ft 5ins (1.65m), and there are currently no estimates regarding the celebrity’s weight. Her hair is dark brown as well as her eyes, while her foot size also remains unknown.
Social Media Presence
Due to the major influence of social networks, it is nowadays a regular thing for active weathercasters and news anchors to nourish a close and active relationship with their fans, for the sake of increasing the popularity of the channels they’re working for, and thus their own net worth. It looks like Liberte herself is quite an active subscriber to this trend, as she can be considered ubiquitous on most social media networks. First and foremost, her Facebook page enjoys a current mass of almost 72,000 followers, while her Twitter account boasts a significantly lower 27,600 followers. Last but not least, her Instagram page is actively followed by over 31,400 fans at this time.
