Cynthia Gouw Interview

How did you become a journalist?

Well, I had a good background: I minored in Asian American studies and majored in Political Science and International Relations. My parents were always very gracious by giving back to the community; and, they taught me that I had a responsibility as well. I thought I could use my pen as my sword by going to Law School — but it wasn’t what I expected, and the lure of Hollywood was too great. Before I became a journalist, I worked as a model and an actress.

As an actress, how did you get started?

I had been modeling since I was 16 — and back then, there weren’t many Asian Americans in the industry — so in many ways, I got lucky. I started landing many commercials and won the Spokesmodel competition on the show Star Search. I was a huge Star Trek fan, and when Bill Shatner cast me as the Romulan Ambassador, Caithlin Dar in the movie Star Trek 5: The Final Frontier — I thought I had died and gone to heaven — or to Romulus! It was all great fun, so I had to really force myself to go back and finish Law School. But I am glad and proud I did.

After modeling, acting and Law School, how did you begin your journalism career?

I really wanted to marry my love of storytelling with being on camera. I started my TV news career at the very bottom — as the farm reporter in Bakersfield, California — and within three months, my agent landed me a job in Dallas — a jump of 120 media markets! But I was way too green, and it really showed. Because of that, I learned a lot and I was determined not to make the same mistakes again. When I moved to Sacramento as an Anchor/Reporter, I dug into my reporting, and covered international news like the handover of Hong Kong to the People’s Republic of China, and later I followed immigrants across the border from Mexico to the United States. I also reported on a brutal initiation ceremony into a girl gang — a shocking glimpse into their world. I won three Emmy Awards for these stories. Then I went on to work as a reporter in TV news in San Francisco, and then later for the NPR station there, where I covered Asian American affairs and the politics and culture of the Pacific Rim.

Why did you leave TV News journalism?

I had covered about 100 murders in my career — with not much time to cover the roots of the problem. One week, I had a homicide on Monday, then two kids in Richmond, California were killed on Wednesday; then on Friday a man killed himself, his wife and his three kids. That’s when I decided it was time to move on. I switched to a job at San Francisco’s NPR station, and really enjoyed the longer format reporting offered there.

What did you do when you moved to Philly?

Well it took me 6 years to land a job in San Francisco — so I wasn’t planning on leaving! But then a mutual friend set me up on a blind date with my husband, Doug and I moved to Philadelphia to be with him. I think many Philadelphians feel they play second fiddle to New York and D.C., so I wanted to do a show that celebrated my newfound city. I developed SnapGlowTV — a web based show focusing strictly on Philly beauty, fashion and lifestyle. I was named one of the region’s up and coming women entrepreneurs and a top blogger. Currently, I am the national TV spokesperson for L’Oreal products — focusing on Clarisonic Skin Care Systems.
