Five time Emmy award winning broadcast journalist, Judy Hsu anchors the 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. newscasts at ABC 7 Chicago. Judy is also the host for “Newsviews”, a long format interview segment that airs on Sunday mornings.
During her tenure at ABC 7, Judy has been a part of just about every major story in Chicago.

Judy was on the anchor desk during the Blizzard of 2015; she helped deliver wall to wall coverage on “CPD in Crisis”; she broadcast the last interview with Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy; she scored the ﬁrst TV interview with Illinois First Lady Diana Rauner. While in California, she covered the O.J. Simpson verdict live from the L.A. courthouse and she learned to pull 5 G’s ﬂying with the Blue Angels!
Judy’s on-air work has garnered multiple Emmy awards including an award for her work on ABC 7’s Asian Inﬂuences: Dream America, a half-hour special highlighting the complexities of immigration law and its effects on the Asian American community. In 2018, Judy received her 19th Emmy nomination including one for “Outstanding Performance” as a news anchor” and “Spot News” coverage.
