Thanh Truong is returning to New Orleans as a reporter for New Orleans Fox affiliate WVUE.

“I’m thrilled to add someone of Thanh’s caliber to our team,” said news director Kristen Palestina. “His knowledge of our viewing area, the people we serve and the unique issues each face will not only improve the quality of our news, but more importantly, benefit our viewers.”

Truong worked at New Orleans CBS affiliate WWL in 2003, before working in Denver and, later, as an Atlanta-based national correspondent for NBC News. He returned to WWL in 2013, then left in February 2020 to produce and host a weekly podcast focused on the people and stories of southeast Louisiana, as well as a New Orleans-based true crime podcast called New Orleans Unsolved.
