MarketWatch.com reporter Chang dies at 53
Sue Chang, a longtime MarketWatch reporter and editor, died at her home in California on Monday from cancer. She was 53.
Myra P. Saefong and Claudia Assis of MarketWatch.com write, “One day in Korea she came across a random ad looking for rookie reporters.
“That innocuous start led her to report on some of the biggest stories of our time, including the 1997 Asian financial crisis and the historic inter-Korea summit in 2000. Sue went on to become the first Korean to be the bureau chief of a major U.S. media company in Seoul, working for Dow Jones Newswires in the early 2000s.
“A few years later, she found herself at the other end of the Pacific, having joined the University of California, Berkeley’s graduate school of journalism as a visiting scholar.
“After a brief stint at UC Berkeley, she joined MarketWatch in October 2007.
“On the day she got her new-hire packet, Sue said she felt like she never left because she got the same email address that she had when she worked for the wires — Dow Jones had bought MarketWatch a few years previously.”
