CeFaan Kim
Since joining WABC-TV in 2015, CeFaan Kim has covered a wide range of important stories. During the pandemic shutdown, he reported nightly from the streets of New York City, speaking with health care workers, gravediggers, farmers and others impacted by the health crisis.

CeFaan also reported daily on the Black Lives Matter protests that followed the murder of George Floyd. He covered the 2020 presidential election recount in Pennsylvania, the Chelsea terrorist bombing and protests of President Trump's travel ban at JFK airport.

CeFaan has consistently reported on poverty within the AAPI community, including an exclusive report in 2016 on Asian-American seniors who were riding casino buses to help make ends meet and how the pandemic has impacted Chinatown in NYC.

Throughout the pandemic CeFaan has been at the forefront covering the rise of anti-Asian hate crimes, interviewing and telling the stories of countless victims. His reporting helped spark a national conversation on anti-Asian hate and changed how the NYPD investigates anti-Asian hate crimes.
