David Ono(Today we continue our look back at the most viewed stories on AsAmNews in 2014)

So far our look back at the most viewed stories of 2014 on AsAmNews have included stories about Whole Foods pathetic response to racism, an Asian American women trailblazer and one man’s efforts to preserve our history.

Many of us grew up learning from history books that might as well have had blank pages when it came to Asian Americans. KABC anchor and reporter David Ono has done his part to make sure our history will not be forgotten and ignored. He’s produced award winning documentaries about those incarcerated at Heart Mountain, the heroics of Japanese Americans during World War II, the Napalm Girl immortalized by photographer Nick Ut and the recovery efforts following the Japan earthquake and tsunami.

“To me there’s no greater reward than telling a story that moves people,” said Ono. “There is tremendous power and privilege in what we do as journalists. We have the opportunity to inspire people by telling them about the remarkable accomplishments and lives of others.”

The story of David Ono was the 4th most viewed story on AsAmNews in 2014.
