Elaine Kong joined the Local 12 team in April 2018 as a reporter/multimedia journalist.
Born and raised in Bakersfield, California, she graduated from California State University, Fullerton in 2016.
Elaine moved to WKRC after two years with KFDM/KBTV in Beaumont, Texas, where she reported live during breaking news situations including Hurricane Harvey and the World Series in Houston.
In her free time, she enjoys watching "Friends" while eating tacos or some delicious banana pudding (she blame Texas for that one!).
She is excited to see what Cincinnati has to offer, including trying her first Skyline Chili!
Elaine has a passion for storytelling. You can email her with story ideas.
