He’s a St. Paul, MN native and graduated from the University of Northwestern – St Paul. While in college, Chenue interned at stations in California and Minnesota.
Chenue is the son of Hmong refugees, who came to the United States after the Vietnam War. Proud of his roots, he’s always up to talking about all things Hmong from food to culture to entertainment.
When he’s not in the newsroom, Chenue enjoys spending time with his family, re-watching every single Marvel movie, and plotting which pair of sneakers he’s buying next to add to his collection.
Of course, being a Minnesota native, he’s also a sad Vikings and Timberwolves fan but a proud Prince fan.
He’s excited to call Des Moines home and would love to connect with you!
