Sharon Chen joined the 6 news Anchor team in January of 2019. She comes to us from San Diego, Calif., but this isn’t her first time living Nebraska’s “good life.”
Sharon took the first steps of her broadcasting career in Scottsbluff where she was an Anchor, Reporter, Photographer, and Producer at KDUH-TV. From there she moved to our sister station 10/11 News in Lincoln. After 4 years in the Cornhusker state, Sharon moved to the beautiful Front Range community of Colorado Springs where she was Reporter/Anchor at KOAA TV.
After braving the cold of the Midwest and Rockies, Sharon left for the beautiful islands of Hawaii. At KHNL-TV, she was a Reporter/Anchor covering the latest news in the bustling city of Honolulu to the smaller island communities of the Big Island of Hawaii, Kauai, Lanai, and Molokai.
Sharon left Island life to move to San Diego, where she has spent the last 12 years. She joined the team at Fox 6 News and then later at Fox 5 San Diego. As a Reporter/Anchor, she covered top headlines including the massive May Wildfires of 2014, the fallout of infamous Mayor Bob Filner; Comic-Con, and of course the daily breaking news of America’s Finest City.
Sharon was born in Chicago, but raised in the college-rich town of Claremont, Calif. She graduated from California State University – San Bernardino with a degree in Communications and Broadcast Journalism. She also attended the University of California – Los Angeles.
When Sharon isn’t in the newsroom, you might find her in the kitchen experimenting to find a new culinary creation. She also loves to spend time with her family. Her favorite moments are doing arts and crafts or just being silly with her young daughter.
