Sharon Tay has been a journalist and on air news anchor for many years in Los Angeles, find out some of her secrets for staying healthy and camera ready.

Sharon you have been an inspiration to me for years. Have you always aspired to be a journalist?
I have always been inspired to be a tv journalist. Not because of the profile nature of the career .. but the behind the scenes aspect of tv news. From the story telling to the production aspects. I've learned so much from the people of stories we tell, and those who I have worked with over the years.

I remember you telling me about some of the dangerous situations you were in to get a story, can you share a memory with us?
I once was doing a ride along with law enforcement and we did a raid. I wore a bullet proof jacket and literally busted in with them. That was a bit nerve racking. Covering wildfires can also be a bit scary.


Sharon 174How has your career evolved over the years as an on air personality?
My career has been predominantly here in Los Angeles. I've worked here in LA for a little over 20 years. I started at a young age in this market so I had a lot to learn both on camera and off. I had the privilege of working with and for some really fantastic people. On the other hand I've endured some really painful experiences. I'm at a really good place now. I've grown wiser and feel confident in who I am and my abilities.

You have always had gorgeous hair and skin, any tips you can share?
Hmmm.. Since I work my hair everyday.. I'm have to keep it healthy. I always say God may not have blessed me in my desired height he made up for it by giving me good hair. I do Hot Yoga .. and just before class. I put coconut oil all over it. I also have a great stylist.

How do you stay in shape?
I've always been really active and disciplined. But I have to say that a trainer some years ago.. Martin Henry, along with Barry's bootcamp and Moksha Hot Yoga help me stay in shape. Of course eating right too.
I don't do diets .. hate them in fact!

What advice can you give women who may want to pursue a career in broadcasting?
Advice? stay focused.. and be prepared to work hard. It's not what it appears..If you want to get into the business because you think it's glamourous.. you're picking the wrong industry. If you're a field reporter.
partyIt's about thinking fast on your feet, being able to meet hard deadlines, and running around a lot. And being able to write well and fast in order to tell a good story. Looking pretty is not always possible. For Anchors.. it's knowing every part that makes news operates. And being able to communicate with your audience in a way they relate.

What were your biggest obstacles in pursuing your career?
My biggest obstacle was my looks and my out of the box approach. Up until several years ago, I was always criticized for what critics called " too sexy".
I wasn't going out of my way trying to be. And it was demeaning and sexist as hell! I was well educated, well versed in world experiences and skilled but the industry at the time.. wasn't willing to embrace that. They started saying ugly things about me. I will always be a woman first who yes.. has a personality. I'm not just a news reader.. I'm a communicator.

What can we expect from you in the future?
Future? I'm happy and grateful working with the folks at KCBS/KCAL everyday. I've learned a lot from them. My bosses are very supportive.. which is a nice change from the past years. I consider those I work "with" to be some of the best, brightest and talented people I know in local news.
Personally? I have to say I do hope my dating life improves .. but that's a whole other conversation. LOL

    Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research about this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more from this post. I am very glad to see such excellent information being shared freely out there.
