Grace Jang is an investigative reporter for Channel 2 News.

Grace's journalism career began in the community news division of the Los Angeles Times, where she became a reporter in the San Fernando Valley bureau. Grace has also worked as a crime reporter for City News Service, contributed to Associated Press stories and worked as a senior writer at KoreAm Journal, a monthly Korean-American magazine. Her TV news career began at Television Korea 24, a Los Angeles-based cable news channel.

In 2007, she moved to Anchorage as a general assignment reporter for KTVA, where she eventually became an investigative reporter, main anchor and executive producer. Grace is thrilled to be working at KTUU, where the reputation for excellence is a long-standing one.

Grace's work has won numerous awards--from New California Media, Alaska Press Club and Alaska Broadcasters Association.

She holds bachelor's degrees in history and communication from University of California, San Diego, and attended University of Chicago for graduate studies in social sciences.

Grace's volunteer work with organizations like International Rescue Committee and Samaritan's Purse Disaster Relief has taken her around the world, from Cairo, Egypt, to New Orleans, Louisiana. She is also a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Alaska.

Grace was born in Busan, South Korea, and raised in San Francisco. She's the proud aunt of a precocious niece, wife to a dairy farmer-turned nurse and mother to three fur babies.

When not on deadline, Grace likes to hike with her husband and dogs, train in taekwondo and Pilates studios, and pretend to be a winter enthusiast. After six years in Alaska, she has yet to learn to ski or snowboard.
