WSJ hires Cho as news researcher
Jim Oberman, news editor for research at The Wall Street Journal, sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
I am very pleased to announce a new edition to our research team, Elisa Cho. I couldn’t be more excited that Elisa is joining us.
Elisa’s newsroom research experience is varied and vast. She has worked at The Daily News, Fox News, First Look Media / The Intercept, and The New York Times.
A little over 10 years ago Elisa and I job shared a news research position at the New York Times. We worked on opposite days. We are finally getting to work side-by-side.
Elisa received her bachelor’s degree from Carlton, her masters in library science at Pratt, and an m.b.a. from Seattle University.
She is a certified Vinyasa Yoga instructor and says she “loves to teach Baptiste-inspired vinyasa classes”. She is a marathon runner, completing 14 full marathons and has finished 2 ultra marathons (50K). In October she will be running the Marine Corps Marathon – http://www.marinemarathon.com/!
She lives in N.J. with her teenage son and daughter and their dog.
Please join me in welcoming Elisa to the Journal.
