Roger Cheng, the head of CNET News, has left the news organization after 11 years.
“Running CNET News is not a responsibility I took lightly, and I’m incredibly proud of the kind of place we built,” he wrote on Twitter. “CNET wasn’t just a site for gadget reviews, but a bastion of excellent journalism and thought-provoking stories that mattered to our readers.”
Cheng managed everything from daily breaking news to in-depth investigative packages. Prior to this, he was on the telecommunications beat and wrote for Dow Jones Newswires and The Wall Street Journal for nearly a decade and got his start writing and laying out pages at a local paper in Southern California.
He won a SABEW Best in Business award in 2011 for breaking news coverage.
