The YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley is happy to announce that 2014 Emmy award-winning news anchor Cher Calvin of KTLA 5 news will once again return as our event emcee. Cher has been a strong supporter of women’s issues, including ending violence against women worldwide, speaking out against human trafficking, and organizing disaster aid relief to families affected by the 2013 typhoon in the Philippines.

Ms. Calvin joined KTLA in 2005 and anchors KTLA’s award-winning 6:00 pm and 10:00 pm nightly newscasts. Before her current role, Cher co-anchored the weekend evening news as well as KTLA’s morning show. She has also won three Golden Mike Awards: two for Best Public Affairs Program, Access LA and one Golden Mike for the KTLA Morning Show. Her on-camera career began in Manila, Philippines. While she was there from 1998 to 2003, Cher served as news anchor and features reporter at GMA, Channel 7, followed by news anchor at CNN Asia Affiliate and national network ABS-CBN Broadcasting. Believing it is important to give back to her community, Cher is a spokesperson for the charity Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches. She has also participated in the Vagina Monologues to help stop violence against women around the world.
