Denise Wong joined the KOLO 8 News Now team as the weekend anchor in September 2016, but she's not new to Northern Nevada. In fact, this is the second time she's worked at KOLO and couldn't be more thrilled to move back to Reno to raise her family.
With nearly 20 years of experience in TV news, Denise has followed her career around the country. She has covered everything from the 2008 Presidential Election in Washington, D.C. to the deadly nightclub shooting at Bally's on the Las Vegas Strip. Most recently, she reported for KOVR/CBS13 in Sacramento, where she covered numerous stories on the drought.
Denise graduated from UCLA, majoring in both Communication Studies and Psychology. She holds a master's degree in Broadcast Journalism from Boston University. She lives in Northwest Reno with her husband, Josh, their young son and their pit bull.
She's also been known to be a Lakers fan. So there.
