An extremely shy TV news anchor shares her personal story

Wendy Tokuda worked as a primetime anchor in local television news for almost 40 years. She anchored the news in Seattle, Los Angeles, and for the majority of her career, in San Francisco. She was also the first Asian American to anchor a weekday primetime newscast in San Francisco.

With that history, you might assume that Wendy is naturally outgoing, extroverted, or unafraid to speak up. Well, that is not the case. At least it wasn’t for a very long time.

In our newly featured DTBF story, Wendy shares her personal experience of overcoming extreme shyness, and how she carved a path to become an Emmy Award-winning journalist and one of the most popular TV news anchors in the Bay Area.
