Bay Area native Claudine Wong always wanted to be a reporter for KTVU Channel 2 News and she worked hard to fill her aspirations. Currently assigned to report for the "KTVU Channel 2 Morning News," "Mornings On 2," and the "KTVU Channel 2 News at Noon," Wong first walked into the KTVU news room in 1995 as a summer intern while she was going to school at UCLA.
After graduation with a BA Cum Laude in Mass Communications, Wong headed to Klamath Falls, Oregon for her first professional broadcasting job as the Bureau Chief and reporter at KDKF-31. Enterprise reporting and research for the local Klamath County area earned her a spot as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor at KDRV-TV 12 in Medford, Oregon.
With the wealth of reporting, anchoring, editing, and research experience she had developed at that point, Wong was soon hired at WNDU-TV in South Bend, Indiana as a reporter and weekend anchor. She came home to the Bay Area to work for KTVU in July, 2003.
Packing a suitcase full of broadcasting awards including those from the Associated Press, the Society of Professional Journalists, and an Edward R. Murrow Award, Wong fit right in as a member of the award-winning KTVU Channel 2 news team.
"I got the news bug early in my life by watching KTVU's news," said Wong. "It is the only station I ever wanted to work for and I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to roll up my sleeves in what may be the best news operation in the United States."
Wong has spent hours at the Redwood City courthouse covering the Scott Peterson double murder trial and Bay Area breaking news that happened overnight.
Wong is married and the mother of two sons and a daughter.
