Allison Walker Torres is Spectrum News 13's In Focus host as well as a reporter and anchor. She’s been a part of the news team since March 2007.
Being a specialist in entertainment and with the In Focus show, she gets to discover all kinds of talented artists, performers, and musicians.
Allison is inspired by the countless number of compelling people she’s met along the way. She’s a pro at crafting a story with a script, visuals, and sound. She’s a three-time Emmy Award-winner for her On the Town franchise and a two-time Associated Press award finalist.
Even though Allison grew up in New England, she always felt like Central Florida was a "CareBear-palm trees-rainbows-and-puppies kind of place." A dozen years later, she still feels the same way about the place she now calls home. When not covering artists, she spends her time traveling the nation and the world with her husband, Ted, an Elvis tribute artist.
The beautiful Florida weather is great for a runner like Allison — her morning jogs are for reflection and prayer. You might spot her running around one of Central Florida’s many lakes.
