Lisa is probably best known in her role as anchor on Sky News, where she worked from 1993 until autumn 2005. She began her television career at BBC West television in 1984, working on their regional news programme. In 1985, she switched sides, moving to HTV West as a reporter and presenter, where she remained until c. 1988. She then moved to TV-am, initially in a reporting role, but later becoming a news presenter, taking over from Gordon Honeycombe. Following the demise of TV-am, Lisa worked briefly for BBC World Service Television and the NBC Superchannel before moving to Sky News.
In September 2005, Lisa returned to Bristol, becoming one of the regular co-anchors on ITV West’s The West Tonight. From 16th February 2009, she became co-presenter of the pan-regional news programme The West Country Tonight, which replaced The West Tonight (ITV West) and Westcountry Live (ITV West Country).
In mid-June 2009, Aziz disappeared from her presenting role. In July 2009, The Mail reported that Aziz had been suspended for irregularities with her expenses. It was also reported that Aziz planned to sue ITV for religious, race and sex discrimination after an alleged prolonged bullying and harassment campaign. It was later reported that she had initiated legal proceedings against her employers in response to the allegations, and had lodged complaints about four people at ITV West.
Aziz said that she had not been suspended, but had been signed off work for three months due to stress caused by the expenses allegations. In February 2010, The Bristol Evening Post reported that Aziz had officially left ITV West and had dropped all allegations against the broadcaster.
Lisa now lives in south London and works for Global Radio. She has been a newsreader on LBC and currently reads the news on Classic FM.
