Lisa Coles Guerrero (born April 8, 1964) is an American sportscaster, actress, host and model.

Guerrero was born in Chicago, Illinois. She was the daughter of Walter Coles, an American of English descent and Lucy Guerrero who was from Chile. Guerrero spent her childhood living in San Diego and Huntington Beach, California. In 1972, when Lisa was eight years old, her mother died of cancer. To cope with the loss, her father enrolled her in theater therapy. Her mother and father worked for the Salvation Army, her grandparents were involved in The Salvation Army, and so on for many generations on each side of the family.

Guerrero began her show-business career in the 1980s as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Rams. After being a cheerleader for the Rams, she moved on to be the entertainment director for the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. Later, in the 1990s, she moved on to star in Aaron Spelling's Sunset Beach. In 1997, she became a sports-anchor on Los Angeles' KCBS station and later KTTV station.

In 1999, she moved to the Fox Network, where she participated in such shows as Sports Geniuses, Fox Overtime, Fox Extra Innings and the Toughman competition shows. She travelled to Egypt to tape the special Opening the Tombs of the Golden Mummies. Guerrero also starred in the San Diego Chargers magazine-style television show. She also co-hosted The Best Damn Sports Show Period, alongside Tom Arnold and Michael Irvin, among others.

In 2003, she left The Best Damn Sports Show Period to join ABC's Monday Night Football television crew. Guerrero left the Monday Night team after one season.

The Los Angeles Times has called Guerrero the hardest working sports reporter[citation needed]. The Hispanic Business Journal named her one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in America[citation needed]. President Bush invited Guerrero to host a Hispanic luncheon at the White House[citation needed].

On February 3, 2004 Guerrero married former Baltimore Orioles MLB pitcher Scott Erickson.

Guerrero posed for a cover-featured pictorial published in the January 2006 issue of Playboy. After her pictorial, Guerrero said that Playboy had asked her to pose for the magazine in the mid-1980s but as a young model it felt like crossing the line.

On June 15, 2006, Guerrero became a correspondent on the TV newsmagazine Inside Edition. Guerrero also became the co-host of VH1's game show The World Series of Pop Culture. Guerrero occasionally writes a blog for the Los Angeles Times sports section.
