Laura Diaz is a fourteen-time Emmy Award winner and a three-time Imagen Award winner. In August of 2011, Laura and her team took home the prestigious Imagen Award for Best Local Informational Program. It focused on the controversial topic of African American and Latino "Race Relations" in Los Angeles. This was the first special produced and aired under the CBS2 "Eye On Our Community" banner. In 2006 Laura earned an Emmy for Individual Achievement in Feature Reporting. Ms. Diaz also won back-to-back Golden Mike Awards in 2005 and 2006 for best feature reporting. In June 2005, she landed the first in depth television interview with incoming Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. That story earned her a national Imagen Award in 2006. Diaz produced and reported that piece.
In 2003, Ms. Diaz received the L.A. Press Club's highest honor, the "Joseph M. Quinn Award" for journalistic excellence and distinction. It represents a milestone in her career.
Since jumping to KCBS, Ms. Diaz continues to fulfill her passion for story telling, as a field reporter and producer in addition to her anchor duties. Her story about Billy Queen, a federal agent who went undercover to bust up a murderous motorcycle gang, was awarded an Emmy and a Golden Mike. She also confronted an angry gang member for a story on "Emotional Gangs", a new kind of street gang that spreads hate between African Americans and Latinos in Los Angeles.
