Linh Bui is the Morning and Noon Anchor for WJZ Eyewitness News. The Maryland native joined WJZ in 2013 as a Weekend Anchor and Reporter.
One reason Linh loves journalism is she gets to meet inspirational people. For example, she interviewed top athlete Tatyanna McFadden–who was born with Spina Bfida, but has won multiple Paralympic medals and marathons. Linh’s profile on McFadden won an Associated Press Award for Outstanding Sports Feature.
She was also nominated for an Emmy Award for WJZ’s breaking news reporting of the 2014 shooting at the Mall in Columbia. The shooter killed two people and then turned the gun on himself. WJZ was immediately on-air, providing live wall-to-wall coverage as that tragic event unfolded.
Before moving to Baltimore, Linh was the Morning Anchor for WZVN in Fort Myers, Florida. Soon after she got there, an oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico. Linh played a big role in the station’s coverage of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, focusing on the impacts on tourism and the local economy.
Her career began in Macon, Georgia, where she was the Weekend Anchor for WXGA.
A proud Terp, Linh graduated from the University of Maryland, College Park with a degree in journalism. She reported for the school’s award-winning program, Capital News Service.
She is Vietnamese-American and a member of the Asian American Journalists Association.
Linh and her husband live in the city with their mutt, “Little Man.” She loves traveling, trying new restaurants and catching up with friends and family.
