Hello! I’m Ky Trang Ho.

I am a freelance business and financial writer, content strategist and PR consultant in Los Angeles. I was a Forbes contributor for three years, covering Shark Tank, ETFs and mutual funds. Before becoming a solopreneur, I was a reporter at Investor’s Business Daily for nine years, covering stocks, exchange-traded funds and mutual funds.

I have freelanced for National Public Radio, Marketplace, KQED in San Francisco, Pacifica Public Radio and various shows. I have worked for KPCC 89.3 FM, Southern California Public Radio, KCET, KESQ, KPFK and ABC NewsOne, a division of ABC News. I earned a BA in sociology at UC Berkeley and an MA in communications and journalism through the Kiplinger Public Affairs Fellowship at The Ohio State University.

I loved covering Shark Tank.

I started covering Shark Tank for Forbes by accident. I was brought on initially to cover ETFs and mutual funds. One day Kevin O’Leary’s office emailed me asking if I would like to interview him about his ETF launch. I asked my editor if I could do a sidebar about my favorite show. She said yes. They’ve been wanting to expand their Shark Tank coverage. I did it ever since.

I am so grateful to have met some of the most amazing people while out and about. Here’s me with Professor Jeremy Siegel, the famed UPenn economist; Ambassador Sung Kim; John Chiang, California state treasurer and 2018 gubernatorial candidate; Sean Stephenson, motivational speaker; and James Altucher, blogger extraordinaire.
