Dion Lim Career
Her first day at ABC7 started with an engineer handing her a big red bag that contained my fireproof suit, a helmet, and a face mask. Dumbfounded, she stood there staring at the bag and asked herself: “What has she gotten herself into!?”. The North Bay fires had just broken out and within an hour, she was in the epicenter of the destruction. The adrenaline kicked in. From neighborhoods of multi-million dollar homes to mobile home parks, the flames showed no mercy.
Fire victims were stumbling through the street, dazed and covered in thick black ash. The air was so thick with smoke, that it burned your lungs and tears would stream down your face. Despite the chaos and gut-wrenching sadness, being able to tell their stories was an honor and a privilege and it reminded her of why she got into this TV news business in the first place.
The path to ABC7 News began when she was just a child, and her parents, two immigrants from Hong Kong and Taiwan wanted her to learn how to speak “proper” English. They would sit her in front of the TV to watch ABC’s 20/20. Hugh Downs and Barbara Walters were her heroes. Former mentors, starting from her high school TV teacher, Mr. Lewis, to another Mr. Lewis who was, at the time, news director at a station in Hartford, Connecticut assisted her in starting as a student reporter.

From there, the business brought her to Springfield, Massachusetts as a bureau reporter, then Kansas City as a weekend, and from there weekday morning anchor, primary evening anchor, and reporter in Charlotte, and most recently, main anchor and reporter in Tampa Bay. The journey has taken her from ground zero after hurricanes and tornadoes to broadcasting in a booth next to Michelle Obama at the Democratic National Convention, and to Hollywood for red-carpet TV show premieres.
She has no Emmy awards but she is proud to have been voted “Best Morning Anchor” and “Best TV Personality” by different publications in Kansas City and Charlotte, and then named one of the nation’s top 18 leaders under 34 in TV by Broadcast & Cable Magazine. Having those roles allowed her to pursue community involvement projects, such as developing programs for women’s professional groups and students revolving around the theme of laughter, empowerment, and being authentic.
