Miyoung began her career as an intern at CBC the day before the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York. And, so began her journey into reporting some of the biggest stories of the next decade, including the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Games, the Queen of the North sinking, and the taser death of Robert Dziekanski. Miyoung is ringing in her sixteenth year with CBC, currently working as a reporter and producer with CBC Vancouver News.
A graduate from both BCIT, with a Broadcast Journalism Degree, and UBC, with a B.H.A. Honours in History with a Minor in English Literature, Miyoungstrongly believes in giving back to the community. Miyoung is married with two daughters and spends much of her spare time mentoring high school students aspiring for a career in Journalism, as well as volunteering with the Richmond Student Parent Colt Program, an organization that supports teen mothers to complete their high school education.
Her multiple regional and national awards and nominations in broadcasting and for her work in the community show why she continues to be a tour de force in both worlds.
