Jenny Suo began her television career in 2009 at TV3, directly after finishing a degree at the New Zealand Broadcasting School in Christchurch. Suo — who moved to Auckland from China when she was four — went on to report for Nightline, 3 News and Newsworthy. After four years at TV3, she moved to the USA in 2014 for a year. Returning to TV3 for two years, Suo eventually produced and presented for Newshub Late. In September 2017, she moved over to 1 News as a reporter, and read news for Breakfast and late bulletin 1 News Tonight. Suo became 1 News Tonight's presenter in late January 2019.
In 2014, I went to New York alone to cover the trial of Islamist cleric, Abu Hamza. I was only 24, had never travelled alone or been to New York, and I had to navigate the US court system by myself. It was one of the most terrifying and rewarding experiences of my life. I realised that I was more capable than I thought. Jenny Suo, on her biggest work accomplishment, Fashion Quarterly, March 2019
