Emmy Award-winning newscaster Judy Hsu is a happily married woman. She has been married to her husband Tracy for over 20 years.
Hsu first met her husband Tracy when she moved on to KFMB-TV in San Diego, where she worked at the anchor desk.
The two dated for a while before deciding to get married. And although the couple hasn't disclosed much about their wedding, it is known that they tied the knots in October 1997.
The power couple even celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary in October 2017. On that occasion, the newscaster posted a picture with her husband on her Instagram and informed her followers that she went on a vacation to celebrate the milestone.
"20 years of marriage and we're still smiling! Took a few days off to celebrate. Back to the anchor desk tomorrow," she captioned.
Together, the ABC anchor and her husband have four children, two sons and two daughters: 11-year-old and 19-year-old boys, and 12-year-old and 16-year-old girls.

Back in October 2009, Hsu gave birth to her fourth child on the side of the Eisenhower Expressway when she was on her way to the hospital to deliver her baby around 3 a.m.
She was accompanied by her husband while she gave birth to the little one. Later, he took both Hsu and the newborn baby to the hospital.
Speaking to West Suburban Living in January 2017, she shared her experiences of becoming a parent. She said, "We have 7- and 15-year-old boys and 8- and 12-year-old girls."
She further added that having four kids is "a full house," but they have taught her that "there’s no such thing as perfect balance."
"I’m just happy when I don’t miss more than three e-mails or texts about their daily schedule between school and activities!"
On August 5, 2019, Hsu even took to her Instagram to share her family's vacation picture, where her husband and all four children were featured.
The family of six lives together in the western suburbs of Chicago.
Hsu's Bio Reveals Age & Height
Newscaster Hsu was born in 1971 in Taipei, Taiwan, to her parents. Her dad was a well-known Grand Master of Tai Chi.
However, she immigrated to Chicago along with her family from Taiwan when she was 11-years-old. The family then settled in Morton Grove, and she attended Niles West High School, where she was involved in dance and cheerleading and was captain of the pom-pom squad.
Growing up in Chicago, she attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where she received her B.A. in Broadcast Journalism.
Hsu having a height of 5 feet, landed an on-air reporting job the day after her graduation. Her broadcasting career began with a brief stint at WCIA-TV in Champaign-Urbana before moving on to one of the company’s sister stations, KFMB-TV, in San Diego.
Her Salary & Net Worth
Hsu, age 50, joined ABC 7 as the weekday anchor of the station's #1 rated morning newscast back in 2001. She helped lead the morning show for 15 years before her promotion to the afternoon newscasts.
She served as KFMB's weekend anchor and general assignment reporter before joining ABC 7.
With her long working career and experience, Hsu has also made sure to earn a respectable salary - but she is yet to reveal the figure of her salary and net worth.
But sources reveal that the average salary of an ABC News reporter in Chicago is $43,248 per year. Hence, her experience surely earns her more than the average salary.
