Julia Wong joined Global Halifax as a video journalist in April 2013.
Wong grew up in the suburbs of Toronto, but moved to Los Angeles to study communications at the University of Southern California. She interned at NBC Nightly News, CNN Los Angeles and KCAL/CBS. She then moved to Bowling Green, Kentucky to report and produce for WBKO-ABC.
She returned to Toronto where she worked briefly as an editorial assistant for Global’s current affairs show 16×9, then moved out west to work at Global Okanagan, and is currently at Global Halifax. Since her time on the east coast, she has covered the Rexton fracking protests, Loretta Saunders’ murder trial, AC624 crash at the Halifax airport, and Prince Charles and Camilla’s visit to Halifax.
Julia is excited to live in, work in and explore all the Maritimes has to offer. In her spare time, she likes to bake bread, take dance classes and go sailing.
