Jo Kwon is so grateful to have a career that allows her to learn something new every single day. She has dreamed of having a career in broadcast journalism since she was five years old, watching the news with her parents.
She landed her first professional job in college writing for a newspaper in Cambria for about a year. She then moved on to on-air work. She became anchor, reporter and Assistant News Director for her campus' first daily newscast called CPTV. She did several internships at local television affiliates, then became a Field Producer and Weekend Producer at KCOY/KKFX (CBS/FOX affiliate) in Santa Maria, CA. After that, she was hired as the Morning Anchor and Reporter at KVTA Newstalk 1520 in Ventura. Then she went online to become the VJ/Host and Supervising Producer of 20th Century Fox's "Atomic News", a daily online news show aimed at 17-24 year olds. The next stop was KNX 1070 Newsradio. After about a month as a News Assistant, she was promoted to Producer of Money 101 and special features. She won two Golden Mikes for her work with KNX. But her true passion is on-air work. Thanks to a few mentors who truly believed in her talents, she was hired to be the General Assignment Reporter at KABC 790 in March of 2009. She has won two Golden Mikes for her stories at KABC Radio. After three years at KABC 790, she was hired as a Reporter for KFI AM 640 in February of 2012. She is also an anchor and fill-in host on the station. She is also the station's first multi-media journalist producing videos stories for the station's website.
When she's not reporting, you can often find her surfing in the Pacific and beyond or running miles along the coast.
