Chenue Her is a TV news reporter at 11 Alive in Atlanta. We first talked for the podcast back in March but that was a brief conversation centered around the spa shootings in the Atlanta area and the Stop Asian Hate campaign. In this conversation we dive into Chenue’s fight with COVID, growing up in Minnesota, self care as a journalist and son of Hmong immigrants, his meme fame, and his growing sneaker collection.
