Kyung Lah | TEDxTokyo 2011
Kyung Lah believes television journalism can be a great equalizer, including the voiceless and defenseless in our global conversation and moving the masses to demand change from those in power.
As CNN’s Tokyo-based international correspondent, she’s covered the G8 Summit in Hokkaido, the U.S. Marine rape case in Okinawa, and the global economic slowdown’s impact on the world’s second-largest economy. Korean by birth, Kyung filed several stories for the network’s Eye On South Korea special, and reported live after a huge earthquake shook China’s Sichuan Province in May 2008. While a Washington-based national correspondent for CNN Newsource, she covered breaking events like the “Jena 6” racial demonstrations and Virginia Tech shootings.
After the devastating March 11 earthquake, she reported from Sendai City. Prior to CNN, Kyung was a reporter and anchor at KNBC, ABC and CBS, and covered the California wildfires and the Kobe Bryant and Michael Jackson trials.
