Move Closer to Your World, My Friend.

ON TUESDAY, NYDIA HAN, a reporter and anchor at 6ABC, will visit the class.

Han has been at 6ABC (a.k.a. Action News) since 2002. She has covered a wide variety of stories in the region and around the country. She currently serves as a weekend anchor and consumer affairs/ investigative reporter. You can find some of her recent work here.

She is a Southern California native who speaks Korean fluently. She graduated from the prestigious Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

We'll open the floor for your questions, so think about what kind of information you can draw from her. Wonder what her daily life at work is like? What is it like being a female journalist, or an Asian-American journalist? How does she decide what subjects to cover in her consumer affairs segments? What are the secrets behind newscasts that the audience doesn't know?

FYI: Action News has been the most watched newscast in the Greater Philadelphia region for decades. And there are numerous Temple grads at the station, including several reporters (David Henry, Cathy Gandolfo, Jeff Skversky, etc), producers and the station president, Bernie Prazenica.

For me it all about learning about the business of Journalism from a Pro Nydia Han of 6abc Action news.

I loved listening to her. She was so personable and nice, but you could see how serious she was.
