Howard University has hired writer, editor, marketing strategist Rin-rin Yu as editor-in-chief of Howard Magazine. There, she will report to vice president of communications and chief communications officer Frank Tramble.

“I’m excited to welcome Rin-rin to the Howard team,” said Tramble in a statement. “She is a skilled journalist with a proven track record that will serve the University well. This chapter of Howard’s history is one of the most critical to date. The stories lived today will be told for generations to come and it is important that we continue to authentically document, highlight, and uplift our journey.”

Previously, Yu has worked at ABC News in New York. She has also worked at Washingtonian, the National Association of Home Builders, Hanley Wood Business Media and WHDH-TV.

“Everyone at Howard has a unique story, whether it be a student, faculty, staff or alum. As editor-in-chief, I look forward to sharing those stories with the Howard community and beyond,” said Yu. “Howard’s rich and important history is also history-in-the-making, and I’m excited to meet the students today who will one day be running our country in a multitude of roles and professions. I hope they’ll stay in touch so that we can share their stories.”

Yu is an M.S. in journalism from Northwestern University.
