Catherine Kim, NBC News senior vice president of editorial, sent out the following on Wednesday:
We are pleased to announce that Brian Cheung has been named an NBC News Business and Data Correspondent, continuing to cover business and the economy across all platforms of NBC News – including writing for digital, as well as MSNBC.
Since joining the Business & Technology Unit as a reporter in September 2022, Brian has been ubiquitous across all platforms breaking down all kinds of data – from the latest inflation numbers to the jobs report to retail sales — and translating what it all means for our audience and the overall health of the economy. Brian led coverage of the Silicon Valley Bank collapse and the regional banking crisis earlier this year, was steadfast on the stakes of the UAW strike, and captured the pulse of Americans across small towns and cities. In 2024, we look forward to more of his crucial reporting on whether the economy is working for most Americans, as Wall Street, inflation and family budgets will surely be front and center for voters as we enter a presidential election year.
Please join me in congratulating Brian on this well-deserved recognition.
