Eileen Park is a reporter and anchor for KOIN 6 News.
She began her journalism career in NYC at ABC News 20/20 as a freelance senior production associate. She then moved abroad as a freelance international correspondent for several years, covering military tensions between North and South Korea, as well as the devastation in Yangon, Myanmar after Cyclone Nargis.
She graduated with honors from DePauw University as a Communication major and Political Science minor, where she also interviewed Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Before joining KOIN 6, Eileen was a reporter and anchor for CBS North Carolina in Raleigh, N.C., where she launched the station’s first weekend morning newscast.
Born in New York and raised in New Jersey, Eileen has also lived in Beirut, Paris, Cape Town, and Seoul.
Her love for good food, the outdoors, and nature photography are just some of the reasons why she loves calling Portland, Oregon home.
She’s always looking for her next favorite hike, podcast, or slice of pizza.
