 Laura Ling Biography

Laura Ling is an American journalist and writer. She worked for Current TV, which until 2013 was owned by former Vice President Al Gore, as a correspondent and vice president of its Vanguard Journalism Unit, which produced the "Vanguard" TV series. She was the host and reporter on "E! Investigates", a documentary series on the E! Network. In November 2014, it was announced that Ling joined Discovery Digital Networks as its Director of Development.

Ling and fellow journalist Euna Lee were detained in North Korea after they started filming refugees from North Korea who had crossed the river and entered China; many of these refugees were women, and once across the border, they were often sold as brides. Ling says the North Korean guards dragged her across the border. Once in North Korean cells they were tried and convicted, then subsequently pardoned after former U.S. President Bill Clinton flew to North Korea to meet with Kim Jong-il.

In 2015, Ling partnered with The ONE Campaign to make a documentary "How Africa is Hacking the Its Energy Crisis", which was posted on the Seeker Stories YouTube channel. Ling also created and reported on "Rituals with Laura Ling", which was also posted to the Seeker Stories YouTube channel.

Speaking Topics
  • Journey of Hope

    As a journalist, Laura Ling has spent a large part of her career focusing on human rights issues and struggles for freedom. Ling talks about these experiences in addition to her own personal loss of liberty being held prisoner in one of the world’s most secretive, repressive nations and sentenced to twelve years hard labor for doing her work as a journalist. Ling recounts her time in captivity, from moments when she feared she might never see her family again, to glimmers of humanity and compassion directed towards her by her captors, to the ways in which she fought to win back her freedom. She talks about what sustained her throughout that terrifying period of isolation and how she was able to maintain hope.
