Eileen Park joined WNCN after years of working as a foreign correspondent for various network stations. She has reported in more than a dozen countries, covering everything from military tensions between North and South Korea, to reporting undercover in Yangon, Myanmar, for the cyclone that devastated the military-run state.

After graduating cum laude at DePauw University, with a major in communication arts and sciences and a minor in political science, Eileen began her journalism career with ABC News 20/20 and Primetime in New York City. There she worked on double murder trials, celebrity interviews and investigative consumer stories. 

In 2011, Eileen traveled to Willemstad, Curaçao; Beirut, Lebanon; and Dili, Timor-Leste, where she produced high-profile economic reports that were published in award-winning magazines, Foreign Affairs and Foreign Policy. 

Throughout her career, she has landed interviews with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, former Soviet Leader Mikhail Gorbachev and a sit-down exclusive with the youngest prime minister at the time, Curaçao's Gerrit Schotte. 

Born in New York City and raised across the Hudson River in Fort Lee, N.J., Eileen loves traveling and reporting off the beaten path in developing countries around the world.

Her insatiable curiosity to know more about the world is the reason she became a journalist. She whole heartedly believes in journalism as a tool for public justice and the essence of her drive is captured in Joseph's Pulitzer III's quote: "We illuminate dark places and, with a deep sense of responsibility, interpret these troubled times."

After hours she enjoys relaxing with her dogs and watching DVR'd Sunday morning political talk shows.
