CNN International continues to grow in Asia Pacific
CNN International today announced the expansion of its Asia Pacific editorial team with CNNMoney to have a presence in New Delhi plus additional staff in its Hong Kong bureau.
CNNMoney is CNN’s top destination for money news, reporting the latest business headlines and top financial stories for viewers and readers all over the world. Headquartered in New York, with a presence in London and Hong Kong, the new India position marks the next phase of CNNMoney’s expansion for Asia Pacific and further strengthens the world’s largest global business news source.
The New Delhi post will be held by Associate Editor Charles Riley who will be responsible for reporting on key economic stories and developing new editorial content from India and expanding the network’s business coverage from the region. Riley was most recently based in Hong Kong where he pioneered CNNMoney’s coverage from Asia. His Hong Kong role will be filled by CNN Digital producer Jethro Mullen who will join the CNNMoney team in January.
CNN International has also appointed an additional three new members to the Hong Kong editorial team, further cementing its position as a centre for newsgathering excellence. Juliet Perry joins as a digital producer and Natalie Leung takes on the role of associate designer – both charged with enhancing desktop, mobile and social platform capabilities. On the news desk, Zahra Ullah joins as an assignment editor bolstering the already strong line-up of senior producers.
“Nothing gives me greater pleasure than finishing the year with expanding our editorial presence in India and Hong Kong,” said Ellana Lee, Senior Vice President and Managing Editor, CNN International. “Increasing our resources shows once again our commitment to Asia-Pacific and the strength of our newsgathering capabilities.”
The Hong Kong bureau will continue to grow in 2016 with further staff appointments expected to be made in the first quarter of next year.
