Katie Robertson of The New York Times profiled Reuters executive editor Gina Chua.

Robertson writes, “Ms. Galloni and Ms. Chua are at the helm at a time when many news organizations are grappling with how the perspectives of newsroom leadership can shape coverage, and working to improve the diversity in senior editor ranks. Reuters, once seen by competitors as a staid wire service known more for financial news alerts than pushing boundaries, appears to have had more success than others in delivering on those goals.

“‘We reach billions of people as an industry, and I think we have a responsibility to ensure that the stories we tell are representative, truly representative, of the world that we live in,’ Ms. Chua said.

“Ms. Chua is central to an expanded vision for Reuters, which supplies stories, photos and video footage to thousands of other news outlets across the world. About half of Reuters’s revenue comes from a financial data service, called Refinitiv, that it once owned. Reuters gets at least $325 million annually for supplying news to Refinitiv’s customers — making financial news a critical part of its business.”
