Rosie Nguyen is an award-winning journalist who joined the ABC4 News team as a reporter in January 2018.
It’s only fitting that Rosie became part of the KTVX family. She interned for ABC4 News in 2011, featured ABC4 News in her Master’s project documentary in 2016, and graduated from the University of Utah’s journalism program under ABC4’s very own Craig Wirth.
After graduating, Rosie spent more than a year and a half in Oregon as the weekend anchor and reporter at KEZI, the #1 news station in Eugene. There, she reported on one of the state’s most devastating wildfire seasons, historic ice storm, and the total solar eclipse.
While at ABC4 News, Rosie won 1st place in Criminal Justice Reporting at the Utah Society of Professional Journalists 2019 Awards for her story on the state’s new law on strangulation in domestic violence cases. She also won 2nd place in Minority Issues Reporting for her story on racial harassment experienced by two Sky View High School soccer during a game.
Rosie is the daughter of two Vietnam War immigrants. Her father was a soldier for the Southern Vietnamese army and her mother was a boat refugee. She takes pride in speaking Vietnamese fluently and preserving her heritage through cultural community involvement.
Rosie was Miss United Nations USA 2013 and spent her year of service promoting her platform about helmet safety and head trauma awareness after her best friend was killed in a motorcycle accident. After her reign, she continued volunteering for the Vietnamese Community of Utah and the Virtua Foundation, even traveling to Africa to help with building the first children’s hospital in Tanzania.
