Dvorak named senior reporter for Asia at WSJ
Andrew Dowell, editor of Asia Pacific for The Wall Street Journal, sent out the following announcement on Sunday evening:
I’m very pleased to announce that Phred Dvorak will be taking on a new role as senior reporter, Asia. Phred will bring her formidable reporting skills to bear on the region’s biggest stories and most important trends. She will begin her new role this fall and will report to me.
Phred has been in Hong Kong for the past three and a half years. She has overseen The Wall Street Journal’s coverage of markets and finance in Asia since the beginning of last year, and our coverage of Asian companies and business trends for the two years before that. Previously, she was deputy bureau chief in Japan. She joined the Journal in 1999 and has reported from Tokyo, San Francisco and Toronto, covering everything from Japan’s financial-system meltdown and the antics of Masayoshi Son to polar bears and the downfall of the BlackBerry. Phred has a BA in American Studies from Yale University and masters in Journalism and Asian Studies from the University of California, Berkeley.
Please join me in congratulating Phred on her new role.
