EMILY CHANG

Anchor & Executive Producer at Bloomberg Technology, Emmy Award Winning Journalist and Bestselling Author

Chang is an Emmy Award winning Journalist reporting on global technology and media companies, startups, and the future of business. Business Insider called her “the star Bloomberg anchor that everyone in tech needs to know.” In 2018 she was ranked #6 in the “Influence Index” of top journalists followed by major CEOs on Twitter.

As executive producer and host of daily show Bloomberg Technology and the interview series Studio 1.0, Chang regularly speaks to top tech executives, investors, and entrepreneurs, including Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt, and Alibaba Founder Jack Ma.

An instant national bestseller, her 2018 exposé, Brotopia: Breaking Up the Boys’ Club of Silicon Valley, reveals how Silicon Valley’s sexist culture has shut women out of the greatest wealth creation in the history of the world.

Before joining Bloomberg in 2010, Chang served as an international correspondent for CNN in Beijing. She also reported for CNN in London, where she covered international news for the program American Morning.

Chang sits on the board of BUILD, a national non-profit organization that uses entrepreneurship to excite and propel disengaged, low-income students through high school to college success. She was born and raised in Kailua, Hawaii, and graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University.
