Orlando Anchor Publishes First Children’s Book

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

She’s an evening anchor, mother of two and now an author.

WKMG’s Lisa Bell just released her first children’s book, titled Norman the Watchful Gnome.

Bell said she was inspired by a trip to a local nursery in Orlando, Fla, and hopes is that her book helps children cultivate a love for gardening. She noted this will be the first of a few books in a series featuring the gnome character.


Bell has been with the CBS affiliate since 2007. She was promoted to the main anchor chair in 2014.
