Reg Chua

Reuters News
Chief Operating Officer
Reg Chua has been a journalist for more than a quarter of a century, working in print, electronic media, television and radio. He’s currently Chief Operating Officer, Reuters News at Thomson Reuters, based in New York. From July 2009 to March 2011, he was Editor-in-Chief of the South China Morning Post, responsible for the editorial operations of the Hong Kong-based news media company.  Prior to that, he had a 16-year run at The Wall Street Journal, including as a Deputy Managing Editor in New York, where he managed the global newsroom budget, supervised the graphics team, and helped develop the paper’s data journalism capabilities.   He also ran the Journal’s Hong Kong-based Asian edition for eight years, opened the paper’s bureau in Hanoi, and was its correspondent in the Philippines. He learned how to splice reel-to-reel audio tape and edit video on U-matic cassettes at the then-Singapore Broadcasting Corp, and embarrassingly anchored a few TV shows. And in an earlier stint at Reuters in the late 1980s, he witnessed the speed at which information flashes through the financial system and the impact a single piece of news could have.  And, with the launch of Connected China, he’s seeing now how the world of journalism is evolving and – hopefully – advancing.He’s taught graduate-level classes at Hong Kong University, New York University and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore on the business models of journalism, using Excel as a reporting tool, and numeracy in the newsroom. Reg also set up and found funding for a fellowship that brings promising journalists from Asia to study business and economic reporting at New York University.Twitter: @reginaldchua
