Julia Wong joined Global Halifax as a video journalist in April 2013.
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 moved back to Toronto where she worked briefly as an editorial assistant for Global’s investigative show, 16×9: The Bigger Picture. She then moved out west for the chance to work at Global Okanagan, where she covered the Kelowna gangland shooting death of Jonathan Bacon, the Peachland wildfire and a fatal Vernon plane crash.
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.
