Ruby de Luna is a features reporter at KUOW. She had originally planned to go into TV, but ditched the idea after discovering public radio. Ruby reports on a wide range of issues, but her focus has been on Seattle's immigrant community. It's a natural draw because Ruby is a transplant from Taipei, Taiwan. Before KUOW, Ruby worked in the Washington State Legislature as a broadcast information assistant for the House Democrats.
Ruby holds a BA in communication from Seattle Pacific University. She was a Jefferson fellow at the East–West Center Media Program in Honolulu, Hawaii. She's a mentor for the student radio project at AAJA (Asian American Journalists Association). She is former Western Washington Pro Chapter president of the Society of Professional Journalists.
