Ivy Tan joined 8News as a digital distribution producer in March 2022 after earning her master’s degree in history from Virginia Commonwealth University and completing a postgraduate internship at the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. She also earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Syracuse University.
She moved to Richmond from New York City in 2017 and brings with her almost a decade of media and journalism experience. She has previously worked as a producer at “Vogue” and “Details” magazines at Condé Nast Publications, and as a product marketing consultant at HBO. Deeply fascinated by the concept of branding, Ivy thrives at helping others tell their stories, whether that entails communicating a message creatively through social media or producing content that introduces audiences to fresh, new perspectives.
A native New Yorker, Ivy grew up watching “ABC World News Tonight” with the inimitable Peter Jennings.
She loves comedy, dogs, reading, running, cooking, eating and, when the opportunity presents itself, traveling.
