About Me...

Kimberly Cheng is a reporter at KTLA in Los Angeles. An L.A. native, Cheng is proud to tell stories that affect the people of her hometown.

Prior to joining KTLA, Cheng was a fill-in anchor, reporter and multimedia journalist at the ABC affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona.

Cheng also worked at the CBS affiliate in Palm Springs, California. She has worn several hats: anchor, producer, reporter, red carpet host. Cheng has covered a variety of stories-- former President Gerald Ford's death; a controversial Prop 8 protest in Palm Springs that made national headlines; and interviewed some of the world's biggest celebrities.

Fight on! Cheng is a proud graduate from the University of Southern California where she earned a double-degree in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science.

Cheng's professional background stretches beyond news. After graduating from USC, she worked for a prominent residential and commercial real estate developer. She also worked in commercial video production for one of the world's largest automakers.

Cheng is Cambodian-Chinese-American. Her parents and siblings came to the U.S. as refugees. They were forced to escape their homeland after years of torture and genocide under the Pol Pot regime. Without speaking a word of English and without a dime, her family started over. Her parents opened a donut shop in Los Angeles which they ran for decades. Cheng's first job was serving coffee and donuts.

She has said her family's struggles are what motivate her to succeed. "With all the opportunities we have in this country, it would be a shame not to try and fulfill your true potential."

In her free time, Cheng likes to stay active. Her hobbies include working out, snowboarding, hiking, and singing.

Cheng is a member of the Asian American Journalist Association.
