Hanah Cho, a business journalist at the Baltimore Sun, is leaving the paper and headed to Texas.
Cho tells Talking Biz News that she has accepted an offer to join the business news desk of the Dallas Morning News, where she will cover small business/entrepreneurship and banks.
Her new job starts July 2. She started at the Sun in September 2003 so she has been with her current employer almost 9 years.
