Ji Suk Yi
EMCEE – VIP Reception
Ji Suk Yi is a Chicago TV Personality, Social Media Host and resident foodie on “Windy City LIVE.” Entering its sixth season, you can see Windy City LIVE on ABC7 Chicago at 1PM daily, plus catch a midnight rebroadcast.
Born in South Korea, Ji Suk immigrated to the U.S. when she was five years old. She had an eclectic childhood growing up in a rural town in North Carolina eating southern soul food alongside kimchi and rice, one of many adventures in cultural fusion in her life that helped define her unique perspective!
Ji Suk attended Salem College and went on to get her law degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. But soon realized her heart was truly set on journalism and decided Chicago was the best city in the nation to learn about news.
She has been in the ABC 7 Chicago family since November 2006, as a field producer and news writer, and has been on air with Windy City LIVE since its premiere in May 2011.
Her hobbies involve anything to do with food and drink. She’d like to create and work on documentaries one day. Her dream is to be the Asian female version of John Oliver. Anyone that rescues an animal and recycles is considered tops in her book. And always tip your server well.
