Rosie Nguyen joined KEZI 9 News as an anchor and reporter in April 2016. KEZI is the #1 news station in the Eugene market and the weekend morning show that she anchors has continued to stay at #1 since she joined the team. During the week, Rosie reports for the #1 evening newscasts at 4, 5, and 6 p.m.
Rosie’s parents are refugees and survivors of the Vietnam War. She was born and raised in Salt Lake City and graduated from the University of Utah with a Master’s degree in Communication. For her graduate project, Rosie produced a 40-minute documentary that analyzed the relationship between social media and television news.
As an undergrad, she anchored and reported for “Newsbreak,” her college campus television newscast that aired weekly on KUEN. She also interned for KTVX, KUTV, and KSL in Utah.
Rosie loves traveling the world. She spent one semester studying abroad in Spain, visited her mother’s home in Vietnam for the first time in 2014, and helped build the first children’s hospital in Tanzania during a humanitarian trip.
For Rosie, Oregon is her home away from home. She and her Labrador Retriever, Dug, love staying active, and look forward to exploring Oregon’s coast and mountains.
