A total surfer girl, Jo Kwon grew up in Southern California and will never stray far from the water. Her favorite things to do are hit the waves (even though she may not always catch them…) and bum around on the beach, soaking up the sun with a book in hand.

Jo has dreamed of being a reporter since she was 5 years old. She comes to Spectrum News 1 with over a decade of experience and a true passion for informing and entertaining. Most recently, she put together two half-hour shows called “Swell Beaches,” featuring beaches throughout SoCal good for exploring, dogs, bodyboarding, surfing (of course) and more.  

When she’s not at work, you can find Jo spending time with her biggest cheerleaders: her family. Aside from that, you can probably find her making the most of LA traffic by pretending she’s a contestant on American Idol, or cooking up a meal.
