MAY LEE is an award-winning journalist who has been both a US based and international anchor, host, correspondent and producer. At the start of 2020, May’s production company, Lotus Media House, partnered with NextShark, the leading Asian online news source, to launch “The May Lee Show”, a vodcast (video-podcast) focused on Asian and Asian American issues and stories. She has since become a prominent voice in the effort to combat anti-Asian hate that exploded due to COVID-19. In July 2021, she was named one of Forbes 50 Over 50 women leading the way in impact. Along with her media projects, May is also an adjunct professor at USC’s Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. In the fall of 2021, she developed a new course, “Evolution of Asian Americans and the Media” to fill the educational gap when it comes to Asian American history. Over the span of her decades long career, May has been an anchor and correspondent for CNN in Japan and Hong Kong, CNBC in Singapore, NHK in Japan, and CGTN America and Oprah Winfrey’s first network, Oxygen Media, both in the U.S.
