Career

Guerrero began her show-business career in the 1980s as a cheerleader for the Los Angeles Rams. After being a cheerleader for the Rams, she moved on to be the entertainment director for the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots. Later, in the 1990s, she moved on to star in Aaron Spelling's Sunset Beach. In 1997, she became a sports-anchor on Los Angelesmarker' KCBSmarker station and later KTTVmarker station.

She travelled to Egypt to tape the special Opening the Tombs of the Golden Mummies. Guerrero also starred in the San Diego Chargers magazine-style television show. She also co-hosted The Best Damn Sports Show Period, alongside Tom Arnold and Michael Irvin, among others.

In 2003, she left The Best Damn Sports Show Period to join ABC's Monday Night Football television crew. Her performance on the broadcast was heavily criticized and was the main reason for the highest ratings the show had in years. The show hired her with the intention of going in a totally different direction with the job of sideline reporter — personality-driven and feature-driven — then discarded all of that and told her to just do the job in the usual fashion. She said that she never would have taken the job if she had known that they would change their minds like that. Guerrero left the Monday Night Football team after one season and the ratings dropped to lower than before she arrived.

The Los Angeles Times has called Guerrero the hardest working sports reporter . The Hispanic Business Journal named her one of the 100 most influential Hispanics in America . President Bush invited Guerrero to host a Hispanic luncheon at the White House .

Guerrero posed for a cover-featured pictorial published in the January 2006 issue of Playboy. After her pictorial, Guerrero said that Playboy had asked her to pose for the magazine in the mid-1980s but as a young model it felt like crossing the line.

On June 15, 2006, Guerrero became a correspondent on the TV newsmagazine Inside Edition. Guerrero also became the co-host of VH1's game show The World Series of Pop Culture. Guerrero occasionally writes a blog for the Los Angeles Times sports section.
