Dion Lim is an Emmy Award-winning TV news anchor and reporter at ABC7/KGO-TV in San Francisco and author of Make Your Moment: The Savvy Woman’s Communication Playbook to Getting The Success You Want based on her experiences as the first Asian American woman to be at the helm of a weekday newscast in three major markets including Kansas City, Charlotte and Tampa Bay.
Dion is passionate about amplifying voices of color and had led the charge worldwide in shedding light on the hate and assaults targeting Asian Americans in the Bay Area. Her work has resonated across the country on ABC News Live, Nightline, Good Morning America and 20/20.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors and mayor also recently awarded Dion with a commendation for her dedication to reporting on discrimination and xenophobia toward Asian Americans and the Black communities. She was also voted a 2021 Goldhouse 100 A1 recipient for Media and Journalism for storytelling in the midst of the #StopAsianHate movement.
