Lissette Campos (Tampa)
Lissette is a seven-time Emmy award winning journalist and the Director of Community Affairs for WFTS TV ABC Action News. Lissette launched “Positively Tampa Bay” in the fall of 2008 and the television station's signature "Taking Action Against Domestic Violence" campaign in the Spring of 2009.

Under her leadership, the domestic violence awareness campaign has earned more than a dozen national, regional, and state journalism awards and is credited with a 77% increase in calls to the Florida Domestic Violence Hotline. In her personal time, Lissette volunteers with many organizations to serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies and a guest speaker at special events.
