JSK Journalism Fellow
news anchor and reporter, ABC7 (KGO-TV), San Francisco

Natasha Zouves is a JSK Journalism Fellow. When selected as a fellow she was a three-time Emmy Award-winning journalist and a news anchor for ABC7 in San Francisco.

A multi-ethnic storyteller, she is passionate about journalism’s capacity to give a voice to the voiceless and news that affects local communities. She brings a strong science background to her reporting.

While working at ABC in San Diego, she fought to cover how mortality from breast cancer disproportionately affects women of color, as well as the rise of Zika-spreading mosquitoes, bringing in a Centers for Disease Control expert to survey largely low-income neighborhoods affected by the spread.

While reporting for ABC7, she earned her master’s degree in biotechnology enterprise and entrepreneurship from John Hopkins University. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa and magna cum laude from the University of Southern California Annenberg School of Journalism, where she earned a Bachelor of Science.
