Elizabeth Fry joined the Fox 5 news team in June of 2017 as a reporter excited to tell the stories of the people of the Ozarks.
Originally from Plainfield, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago, Elizabeth came to Springfield in 2015 to attend school at Evangel University. After interning with KRBK during her freshman year, Elizabeth fell in love with all things Ozarks and decided to fast-track her schooling in order to pursue her passion of storytelling. She currently is completing a multi-media journalism degree and plans to graduate in the spring of 2018.
Elizabeth's passion to bring stories to life has been embedded in her since a very young age. Her drive to meet new people and help them tell their stories is what has made the news world the perfect fit for her.
When she's not in front of the camera, Elizabeth can be found cheering on her Chicago Cubs (despite being in Cardinal Country), spending time with friends exploring the Ozarks or finding new recipes to test out in the kitchen.
Elizabeth is looking forward to meeting the people who make the Ozarks what it is. If you have a story idea, or just want to say hi, Elizabeth would love to hear from you!
