With her sassy and bubbly personality, Lila brings a fresh and eager look to the social news in Tampa Bay.


As a California native, Lila hails from the illustrious capital of pop culture and entertainment. Lila first got her start in Entertainment News working for TMZ in Los Angeles.


Lila is a proud Mizzou Tiger, and after spending 4 years in the Midwest working for an NBC affiliate and digital news company, she is ecstatic to be back in the sunshine.


Besides being News Channel 8’s social media guru, Lila is a self-proclaimed world traveler. She lived in London and worked for a local TV station covering local arts and entertainment. Since then, she has explored 12 different countries and hopes to trek through many more.


When she’s not bringing you the latest trending news or Tampa Bay Hot Spots, you can find Lila volunteering for Autism Speaks, putting on a chef hat to whip up a mean meal and checking out Tampa Bay’s coolest hangouts.


You can always catch Lila in a killer pair of shoes attempting to master the art of multi-tasking. Lila lives off of laughter and adventure, so stick with her for the inside look as she takes on Tampa Bay.
