Kumi Taguchi- the name definitely sounds someone of Asian origin. It could be suggesting that the person is from countries like China, Japan. If your first impression of the name was also like this, you are in the similar zone with me. I also thought so. But there is a half-truth in it; because she is an Australian by nationality. However, she is also a half Japanese. Okay, let’s get down to know the real story behind this somewhat intriguing matter.

 She is a person born from two people who were brought up entirely in two different cultures, i.e., her mother belongs to the Australian roots while her father who happens to be from Japan represents his Japanese roots. That’s how she got her Japanese name; from her father’s side. This makes Kumi’s personality an interesting one which signifies a mixed ethnicity and thus making her a rich person in terms of culture because right from the early days, she got the environment to know both the culture. She was born in Melbourne, Victory in 1975 and was brought up in rural New South Wales.

As a grown up person, she has established herself as a broadcaster and presenter on ABC and ABC News 24.But coming to this position where she is today in her career has not been an overnight task. Behind her success, she definitely has a story to tell of hard work and dedication.

At the very beginning of her career, she worked at ABC Local Radio. From there onwards, she pursued her passion for writing and film. After graduating in 1997, she worked for 7.30 Report and the Triple J national radio station. Then in 2004, Taguchi chose Hong Kong as her job place where she produced and anchored news, and current affairs show for STAR TV, Asia TV, and NHK World. In 2010, on returning from Australia, she joined ABC and SBS. In 2014, when she made a documentary of those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, she was made an ambassador for mental health awareness. In 2015, Taguchi also hosted the Drive radio show on 702 ABC Sydney.

Talking about her personal life, there is very few information about it. By far we have been able to pull only some details about her life. She was once married to Hugh Riminton, but sadly, their relationship couldn’t last for long as she parted away from her husband. Together, they share a daughter named Coco. The once happy family dissolved without having any other children. At present, is Kumi dating anyone or she already has a boyfriend is a matter of mystery; of which we have not any knowing.
