Liz Nagy - ABC 7

We're so delighted that ABC's General Assignment reporter will be dancing with us this year. 

Before coming to Chicago earlier this year, Liz had been a general assignment reporter/fill-in anchor with WSVN-TV in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale, FL market, starting there in October 2011. Prior to that, Liz  served as weekend news anchor/reporter for WEAR-TV in Pesacola, FL. Prior to her time in Florida, she spent three and a half years as a reporter and weekend anchor at WVIR-TV in Charlottesville, VA. Liz started her television career in May 2006, where she worked at public broadcaster WEIU-TV in Charleston, IL.

Liz hails from suburban Philadelphia (Malvern, PA) and is a 2007 graduate of Elon University in Elon, NC, where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Broadcast Communications and Political Science.

As far as dancing goes, she says that so far it isn't nearly as easy as she remembers it from her days doing community theater and middle and high
school drama guild!   She says, "Being on camera is a breeze compared to the thought of dancing on a stage before a crowd.  But, I'm a firm believer i getting out of your comfort zone to keep things interesting and have fun.  Also, I'm still new here, and what a great way to get involved in the community."  Dancing fits right in with her passion for fitness.  She's always searching for a new workout and physical challenge.  In the summer she loves running the lakeshore, and she rarely passes up a spinning class.  Her other favorite past time is trying new restaurants and finding neighborhood cafes around the city with her husband (she's a newlywed!).  She loves exploring so many Chicago neighborhoods.

As to why she is dancing with us, she says, "I think almost all of us can name at least one, and unfortunately several people we know personally who have fought the disease.  So many healthy women suddenly find themselves in the position of gearing up for a cancer battle, often at a young age.  There are far too many stories of women (and men) who have been taken too soon.  I also feel like it's a disease we seem to be getting closer to curing.  Playing a very small role in that hunt for a cure is the very least I can do."
