Nia Wong joined KLAS-TV as a weekend morning anchor and reporter in May 2016. 

A California native from the East Bay Area, she's made a few stops between home and Las Vegas.

Before even graduating from high school, her first journalism gig sent her to Orange County and Los Angeles to interview/photograph up-and-coming rock bands.

It's a passion she carried on to UC Irvine as an editor/reporter for the campus paper, The New University. 

Some highlights during her years as an Anteater include joining Kappa Kappa Gamma and spending a year abroad in the United Kingdom at the University of Sheffield.

Nia graduated with a B.A. in Literary Journalism and spent a few years living abroad in Asia brushing up her Korean language skills before landing her first broadcast job in Oregon as a one-man band in Roseburg.

It was there where she covered major wildfires and landed an exclusive interview with a VA Hospital physician on the problems plaguing the healthcare system for local veterans.

Her last stop was in Santa Maria, CA working for CBS affiliate KCOY-TV.

Nia is a member of the Asian American Journalists Association.
