LA has a diverse cast of characters. Whether it's the characters with stirring stories or interesting occupations or the people who are just simply characters, this town has them all. In an effort to get to know some of those characters a little better, we've created "Seven Questions with..." If you have a suggestion for a future Seven Questions subject send us an email.Our latest subject is Elita Loresca.

You've seen Elita standing in front of the map providing the people of Los Angeles with weather forecasts since 2007 on NBC4's morning and mid-day newscasts "Today in LA" and the "Midday Report." Elita, a native of the Philippines who moved to LA when she was just 10 months old, left behind the hurricanes of Miami, where she was a weathercaster for the top-rated morning and noon newscasts since August 2004 - WSVN (FOX) for the chance to come back home. A Cal-State Fullerton graduate, Elita is very active in charity work including Habitat for Humanity, American Heart Association and SIPA.

Elita, who admits to reading LAist, took some time out of her busy morning to speak with us about coming home to LA, her favorite NBA team (hint: it's not the Lakers), rain and her FHM photo spread.
