Wendy Burch is an Emmy Award-winning reporter and anchor for KTLA. With nearly two decades of reporting experience, Wendy has delivered thousands of live television news reports, from breaking news to high-profile court cases to star-studded red carpet events.
Her talents have taken her across the country to major television markets including New York City, Dallas, Denver and Phoenix, but she is most at home here in Los Angeles.
Wendy worked as a reporter for KCAL-TV and E! Entertainment in the late ’90s, and was a member of KABC-TV’s Eyewitness News team from 2003 to 2008. During that time, she received an Emmy nomination for best hard news reporting in Los Angeles.
When Wendy is not covering the news, she’s making news with the Good News Foundation, a non-profit charity she founded in 2007. Its mission is to bring together the talented women behind television news for the common good.
Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than a quarter of a million dollars in Good News Grants, scholarships and in-kind donations to a number of dedicated individuals and organizations who are making a positive and meaningful difference for those in need and at-risk in Greater Los Angeles.
Aside from her broadcast television career and her philanthropic endeavors, Wendy has also worked as a media training coach for professional athletes. She has exclusively trained some of the biggest names in the world of sports and has been hired to consult for some of the most recognizable sports franchises in the country.
Wendy, an adopted child, was born and raised in Salt Lake City. She graduated from Brigham Young University with an emphasis in broadcast journalism.
As a former dancer and model, she stays in shape (and sane) by practicing yoga. The current love of her life is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel named Sophia Loren.
