Meet the Moderator
Liz Quirantes anchors the 3, 5, 5:30, 6 and 11 pm newscasts for CBS 12, and is very active in the community. Supporting children’s causes is something Liz is passionate about and she recently served on the board of directors for ChildNet, which manages the child welfare system in Broward and Palm Beach counties and protects abused, abandoned and neglected children, as well as AVDA, Aid to victims of domestic violence. Liz also served for 10-years as a board member of the H.O.P.E. Project, which provided low-cost mammography to the underserved and uninsured women in our area.
Each Tuesday, Liz features a foster child during the 5pm newscast on CBS 12 in her “Forever Family” segment. Those reports have generated hundreds of calls and resulted in many adoptions.
