Before that, she was a reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle for almost seven years, with a focus on crime and criminal justice. Prior to the Chronicle, she worked for the Boston Globe and the Worcester Telegram and Gazette as a reporter, and has bylines in Topic, San Francisco magazine, The Muse, Bustle and Marie Claire.

In 2009, Vivian Ho was profiled in her capacity as Editor-in-Chief of The Daily Free Press at Boston University.[4]

In September 2011, Ho achieved notoriety when she was one of several journalists arrested while covering a protest of Bay Area Rapid Transit. Ho was allegedly handcuffed after identifying herself as a journalist. Her arrest drew criticism from the Chronicle.[5]

In January 2012, Ho was again arrested covering the Occupy Oakland protest.[6]
