Ophelia Young


Ophelia Young joined KSNV News 3 Las Vegas as a reporter and weather anchor in January 2022.

Ophelia comes to us after spending her past few years teaching high school broadcast journalism for the Clark County School District. Before that, she worked as a reporter and/or weather anchor for various local news stations across the western United States, including newsrooms in Wyoming, Colorado, and California.

Ophelia holds a B.A. in Literary Journalism from the University of California, Irvine (UCI). She is currently a Broadcast Operational Meteorology Program student at Mississippi State University and aspires to become an American Meteorological Society (AMS) Certified Broadcast Meteorologist next year.

Ophelia was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area but is proud to have called Las Vegas her home for the past eight years. She and her husband have two toddlers.

When she’s not telling news and weather stories, she enjoys photography, golf, Crossfit, VGK games, and playground-hopping with her little ones.
