Every Party Needs a Famous Face – Interview with Nancy Loo

I’ve always really enjoyed watching Nancy Loo on Fox News Chicago so I was thrilled when she agreed to an interview. She’s super personable and just a great gal. Here’s what we talked about:

How many kids do you have?
2, boy and girl (very blessed)
What’s your funniest kid’s story?
As a toddler, my son thought I went to work “in” the TV. He would tap on the screen and try to climb in, too!
Ever had a “Mummy Brain” moment?
Of course! During my first maternity leave, I threw away a lot of good silverware while cleaning off plates for the dishwasher!
I heard you went into labour on air, what happened?
I was 2 weeks from my due date so I went to work and then began feeling the contractions. But I thought they were just Braxton-Hicks. While the newscast went on, I realized they were real contractions and fairly regular. Luckily, they hit during commercial breaks and taped reports. It became quite a running gag by the middle of the show, though. I got through the newscast and my daughter waited several more hours before arriving. We earned an Emmy award for that newscast so we often joke about my daughter’s Emmy-award winning arrival!
Do you have any money-saving tips that you use?
I always look for what’s on sale when going through the supermarket aisles. I also enjoy the convenience of the savings cards at Jewel and Dominick’s. I wish I had more time to organize and use coupons more strategically.
If you could be stuck in an elevator with 3 people (dead or alive) who would they be?
Abraham Lincoln, Ghandi and Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy
If you weren’t an anchorwoman, what would you like to do?
OB/GYN
What do you like about Chicago?
A beautiful city with incredible, diverse people!
You were born in Hong Kong, do you miss it?
Yes. I haven’t been back in 3 years.
Give us a Chicago insider tip:
Whenever you’re near Chinatown, stop into one of the bakeries along Wentworth for tasty and cheap goodies. My favorite is the BBQ Roast Pork Buns – 75 cents!

Thanks, Nancy, it was good getting to know the person behind the tv!!
