I’m a journalist on FOX40 and report hard news, feature and social media stories.

I came to FOX40 last year after spending a year at The Los Angeles Times and graduating from Columbia Journalism School. Even though I loved New York, California is definitely my home.

You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ or email me at Zohreen.Adamjee@fox40.com.

I’m known around the newsroom for…

I cry when I laugh.

What keeps me going

Snickers ice cream bars from the snack shop at FOX40, food from one of our cooking segments … actually, after a five and a half hour show, pretty much anything edible.

I give back to my community by…

I love hosting Google+ hangouts. It’s a time when I can have a conversation with viewers and they can directly ask lawmakers questions.

Why FOX40?

It’s not unheard of for me to be on-air multiple times, produce my own hits, write for the web, update to Facebook-Twitter-Pinterest-Google+, take photos for the station with my DSLR, shoot stories with a JVC, and edit on Final Cut – all in the same day.

My greatest TV moment

My greatest TV moment has yet to come!

TV moment I’d like to forget

All the times Kim Kardashian has been trending on Google and I’ve said her name out loud. On a positive note, she is pretty easy to talk about.

If I had free time, I would…

I’d go outside the station with a JVC more often and shoot and report segments for the next day. One of these days, I’m going to push myself to do it more!
