Biography

[]

Connie Chung, or Constance Yu-Hwa Chung Povich, is a well-known American journalist of Chinese descent. She has worked as an anchor and reporter for television news networks in the United States, including NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC. She started a show called "Eye to Eye with Connie Chung," which quickly became a hit across the country. There was a mix of news and celebrity-friendly feature interviews on the show. Despite the popularity of the show, Chung was chastised for focusing on entertainment rather than news. She was the first Asian American woman to lead a major network newscast in the United States of America, and she was just the second woman to co-host CBS Evening News in 1993. She has also done a number of well-known interviews, including one with US Representative Gary Condit following the disappearance of Chandra Levy. She also spoke with Earvin Johnson, a well-known basketball star, when he revealed publicly that he was HIV-positive. After the explosion in Oklahoma City in 1995, she sparked outrage for asking an improper question to a firefighter during an interview. Her inquiry was deemed disrespectful to the circumstances, prompting people to write letters of protest. She was fired as a co-anchor of CBS Evening after a public uproar.
