Julia Wong joined Global Edmonton in December 2015.
Julia 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 has worked as an editorial assistant for Global’s current affairs show 16×9, as a video journalist at Global Okanagan and as a video journalist at Global Halifax.

In her spare time, Julia likes to read, cook and hike. She is an avid traveler always looking to cross another country off her bucket list.
