Career

Cho was a reporter at WPLG in Miami before moving to ABC News as a Chicago-based correspondent for ABC NewsOne, the network's affiliate news service. She later co-anchored ABC's overnight news program, World News Now, with Derek McGinty. During this time, she also served as a correspondent and fill-in newsreader for Good Morning America.

Cho started at WABC-TV on July 6, 2003, replacing Diana Williams at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. In 2011, it was announced that Cho would anchor the station's new "First at 4:00" newscast, with David Novarro, filling the hour left vacant by the departure of The Oprah Winfrey Show. In addition, she continues to anchor the 6 p.m. broadcasts with Bill Ritter.

Personal life

Cho grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, the oldest of two children (she has a younger brother, Andrew). She was born to father Sang Cho, a Korean American surgeon in Boston, and a Jewish American mother, Donna Cho. Her father was born and raised in Korea and immigrated to the US to practice medicine. Her mother was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY.

In early 2003, Cho was recognized by People magazine as one of the "50 Most Beautiful People".

Cho gave birth to her first child, Louisa Simone Gottlieb, on May 17, 2007, in New York City, and continued maternity leave through the summer, returning to the newscast on September 4. Her child is 1/4 Korean, 1/4 German, and 1/2 mixed European and Jewish ancestry.
