Linda Zhang joined KION News Channel 5/46 as a multimedia journalist in July of 2016.
Linda was born and raised in northeastern China. A school trip to the U.S. at age 13 introduced her to the iPod and Disneyland - enough to convince Linda to move to America. At 15, with two over-sized suitcases in tow, she moved in with a loving New York family and began a wild journey of learning English, navigating a new city and growing up in a completely different culture.
A CNN internship during college sparked her interest in television and Linda quickly ditched economics. Linda is a graduate of Barnard College and Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
She is excited to be living and reporting on the Golden Coast. Outside of the newsroom, Linda loves hiking, traveling, and horseback riding. She is working to become a better sailor and possibly to learn how to ride a bike.
