      David Cho to Cover National Business

      We are thrilled to announce that David Cho will be coming to the Business staff to cover Fortune 500 companies when he returns from leave in January. David joined The Washington Post in 2001 as a general assignment reporter in Fairfax, focusing mainly on immigration and religion stories. He wrote about the rise of suburban Latino gangs, the flood of Asian students into evangelical Christian groups, a Muslim online matchmaking service, Joe Gibbs’ “divine calling” to return to football and baby formula crime syndicates. On Sept. 12, 2001, he penetrated the crash site at the Pentagon, where he reported from the scene for 22 hours straight.

      For the past year, David has been earning his MBA at Columbia Business School, studying corporate finance, financial statement analysis and capital markets while sharing meals with the likes of Jamie Dimon, Carl Icahn and Bob Rubin. This experience has given him a unique view of corporate America. He has proposed using the knowledge he has gained over the past 18 months to report on the issues that are transforming the nation’s largest companies. He has creative ideas for writing about the response of corporate America to a variety of monumental shifts now occurring, such as the rapid economic growth of China and India and the impact of this on American consumers. We feel his proposals will bring new sophistication and insight into our business coverage and his contacts and business knowledge make him uniquely qualified for this job. David will also help Brooke Masters cover the dealmakers of Wall Street.

      David was an intern at The Philadelphia Inquirer and a reporter at The Star Ledger in Newark before coming to The Post. He also worked for The Korea Herald in Seoul. David and his wife Sara are expecting a baby in January.
