CBS3’s Trang Do will begin an extended leave of absence from the station “any day now” as she and her husband prepare to welcome their first child, the reporter and fill-in anchor announced this week.
“I will be off the air and at home with my little one for about three months,” Do wrote on social media. “Fear not, I should be back in time for plenty of wintry liveshots from Allentown.”
Do, a Central High School and the University of Pennsylvania alum who hails from Kensington, joined CBS3 as a general assignment reporter and fill-in anchor for the morning and evening newscasts in March of 2016. Previously, when Do was a senior at Penn in 2006, she worked at CBS3 as an intern, according to a station biography.
Prior to her on-air run in Philly, Do began her career in TV news as a correspondent at KTVQ in Billings, Montana, and later worked at stations including Huntsville, Alabama’s WAFF-TV, and WPMT-TV in York, Pennsylvania.
She and her husband, Kevin Nguyen, married in 2015, when Do was working as an investigative reporter at WMAR-TV in Baltimore, according to an Inquirer profile. The pair have been together since high school.
