David Cho Named Editor in Chief of Barron’s

From a Barron’s press release:

We are pleased to share that David Cho will be joining Dow Jones as the Editor in Chief of Barron’s.

David joins Barron’s after spending 20 years at The Washington Post, where he most recently served as Business Editor. In this role, his digital-first focus led to aggressive expansion, both journalistic and geographic, as well as substantial audience growth….Under his leadership, the Washington Post’s business desk won a Gerald Loeb award for commentary last year.

David’s work as a reporter and an editor has garnered much recognition over the course of his career. In 2014, he was a member of The Washington Post team that won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for its reporting on the Snowden documents. In 2010, he was the primary editor of a series on compromised medical research that won a George Polk Award.

Prior to becoming an editor, David broke huge stories during the 2008 financial crisis, disclosing the government’s effort to rescue Lehman Brothers and the payment of executive bonuses at bailed-out AIG. That coverage was honored by the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.

Before joining The Washington Post, David worked at The Star-Ledger and The Philadelphia Inquirer. David holds an MBA from Columbia Business School. He is also a graduate of the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs and the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.
