Elizabeth Fry joined the FOX 13 news team in October of 2018 as a multimedia journalist. She is excited to share the stories of the Tampa Bay community.
Before coming to the Sunshine State, Elizabeth worked as an anchor-reporter for FOX 5 KRBK in Springfield, Missouri. During her time there, she covered national news such as the scandal and resignation of former Missouri governor Eric Greitens, the tragic capsize of the 'Ride the Ducks' boat in Branson, and the widespread opioid epidemic overtaking the Ozarks.
Before transitioning to on-air, she worked behind the scenes as an associate producer and web content manager. Springfield is also home to Elizabeth's alma mater. She graduated cum laude from Evangel University with a degree in multimedia journalism.
After growing up in snowy Chicago winters and spending almost four years in the icy Missouri weather, Elizabeth is thrilled to call her longtime vacation spot her new home and is eager to get to know those who make the Tampa Bay community so special. When she is not out in the field, you can find Elizabeth exploring local restaurants, trying out new recipes or soaking up the sun at the beach.
