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.
