Victoria Johnson joined the KSBY News team in April 2013 as a Weekend Anchor and Multimedia Journalist after seven years flying in "Chopper 8" for KFMB-TV, the CBS affiliate in San Diego, where she delivered breaking news and traffic reports.
Victoria combined her love for flying, reporting and aerial videography by filming the aerial video seen in the National Geographic Channel's Great Migrations 2010 nature documentary miniseries, and contributed additional video to Secrets de la Isla Guadalupe, a Blue Ocean Film Festival finalist.
Coming from a "Navy Town", Victoria has long been an avid supporter and spokesperson for numerous active duty military and veteran organizations such as the Tailhook Association, Freedom Station, Blue Angels Foundation and Air Group One, the San Diego wing of the Commemorative Air Force. After flying in an F/A-18 Hornet with the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, she scripted a nationwide media campaign for their 2012 season.
A graduate of the University of San Diego, Victoria holds a BA in Communication Studies. She enjoys mentoring others and has acted as a mentor for the Associated Press's APTRA academy. She has also participated as a judge for the 2012 National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Pacific Southwest Chapter EMMY Awards.
In her spare time, Victoria enjoys horseback riding, camping, scuba diving, flying and traveling. Her dream is to take advantage of the gorgeous California central coast weather to complete her license as a private pilot.
