About Elizabeth

Elizabeth “Lizzy” Couch was born in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, but grew up in Oklahoma City.

Although she had always been fascinated with photographs and cameras, it wasn't until 2007 when she picked up a DSLR for the first time. A photo from her first assignment at a journalism workshop at The University of Oklahoma went on to win a national competition hosted by the Dow Jones News Fund.

In 2011 she earned a B.A in Mass Communications with cum laude honors from Oklahoma City University (OCU). While at OCU, she served as a photographer and an editor for Student Publications

While still in college, she accepted a fulltime producer position at Telemundo Oklahoma, where she produced the only Spanish-language newscast in the state.

Following graduation, Couch joined KOCO-TV in Oklahoma City as a news producer where she was involved in coverage of multiple severe weather events (including the deadly May 20, 2013 tornado) and two Children’s Miracle Network telethons.

In 2014, Couch joined KXTX-TV in Dallas as a news producer, earning four Lone Star Emmys for topics including breaking news coverage of the July 7, 2016 downtown Dallas police ambush.

After leaving KXTX-TV, Couch joined Parkland Health & Hospital System as a Media Specialist. In 2019, she joined The University of Texas at Arlington as an Assistant Director of Media Relations.


“It's not enough to just own a camera. Everyone owns a camera. To be a photographer, you must understand, appreciate, and harness the power you hold!”
