Nancy Loo

Emmy Award-winning Anchor Nancy Loo brings an extensive background of international reporting to FOX News Chicago.  Prior to joining the team as a co-anchor for FOX News at 5 a.m. and FOX News at Noon, Nancy's career took her on news assignments to England, China, Japan, Taiwan, North and South Korea, Thailand and the Philippines. That's where she met her future husband while covering a coup attempt against Corazon Aquino.

In 2004, Nancy earned an Emmy nomination for her series "Chicago's Coolest Cribs" which featured unique homes in the Windy City.

Before moving to Chicago in 2001, Nancy was a news anchor and reporter for WABC-TV in New York, where she earned three Emmy Award nominations. Her team won the Emmy for Best Morning Newscast for a show in which Nancy actually kept delivering the news through labor contractions. (Her daughter arrived 12 hours later.)

From 1986 to 1989, Nancy was an Anchor and Reporter at English-language TV channels in Hong Kong and Japan.  She also served as a correspondent in the Far East for ABC Radio. 

In 1993, Nancy was among the team of journalists who launched New York 1 News.  During her two years with that 24-hour cable news channel, Nancy was named National Anchor of the Year by the New York Chapter of Women in Cable.  The award was based largely on Nancy's widely-praised performance anchoring eight continuous hours of live coverage after the bombing of the World Trade Center.

Nancy earned a bachelor's degree in broadcast journalism at the University of Oregon. She speaks fluent Cantonese and has studied German, Japanese and American Sign Language.

Born in Hong Kong and raised in Northern California, Nancy now lives with her husband and two children in the northwest suburbs of Chicago.

She currently serves as Co-President of the Asian American Journalists Association Chicago Chapter and is also actively involved in the Chinese American Service League, the Organization of Chinese Americans and the Chicago Chinatown Chamber of Commerce
