Vicky Nguyen is an Emmy award-winning enterprise reporter for NBC Bay Area News.
Vicky has been a Bay Area local since her elementary school days at Santee Elementary. She and her family were sponsored to the U.S. from Vietnam when she was two years old. Vicky grew up in San Jose and Santa Rosa. She graduated as valedictorian from the University of San Francisco where she majored in communications and minored in biology.
Before joining NBC Bay Area, Vicky worked at television stations in Florida, Nevada and Arizona. In Phoenix, she earned two Emmy nominations in the categories of Live Reporting and Spot News. Prior to her stay in the "dry heat" of Arizona, Vicky reported in "the Biggest Little City in the World," Reno, and in Orlando where she shot, wrote and edited her stories before delivering live reports.
Vicky's favorite part of her job is meeting people from diverse backgrounds and having the opportunity to tell stories that make a difference in how people view the world. Her most memorable interviews are with everyday people who share their inspirational stories.
During her career, she has earned several journalism awards from the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA) and the Radio and Television News Directors Association (RTNDA).
When she's not reporting, Vicky loves to travel, try new restaurants, and spend time with her husband, two daughters and two dogs.
