Lisa Colagrossi (born September 30, 1966) is an American journalist and television news anchor and reporter. Currently, she is a reporter for WABC-TV In New York City. Colagrossi joined the ABC owned station in September 2001.

Prior to joining the Eyewitness News team, she was an anchor at WKMG-TV in Orlando.

She came to New York from Orlando, Florida. Her career in journalism began in her native Cleveland, Ohio at WKYC-TV, the NBC-TV affiliate there. In addition to working in Ohio, Colagrossi also worked at news stations in Alabama and West Virginia.

Since beginning her run in New York, Colagrossi has received several Emmy award nominations. She won two Suncoast Regional Emmy Awards from her anchoring in Florida. Colagrossi is also a member of the Society of Professional Journalists.

Colagrossi and her family live in Connecticut. Most recently, Colagrossi was among a long list of reporters competing to replace anchor Steve Bartelstein. Fellow reporter Ken Rosato became the new morning co-anchor, as of the summer of 2007. She continues to regularly fill in for Ken Rosato or Lori Stokes, as well as for Phil Lipof or Michelle Charlesworth on the Weekend Morning broadcasts.

In the spring of 2009, Lisa became "business reporter" on the Eyewitness News This Morning and Noon broadcasts; though she still frequently does breaking news reporting.
