Connie Chung Biography

Connie Chung is a famous TV reporter and an anchor who has worked for many networks and interviewed a lot of important people. At some point of her life, she has been a part of almost all of the most prominent networks in the market. She worked for NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC, respectively.

These include interviews with Claus Von Bulow, US Representative Gary Condit which was conducted right after the disappearance of Chandra Levy, and interviewing the basketball legend Irving “Magic” Johnson, right when he related that he has been HIV-positive.

Connie’s work in the journalism has led her to become only the second female to co-anchor a network newscast which she did with CBS Evening News. Unfortunately, she was removed from that position after having an inappropriate interview with a fireman about the Oklahoma City bombing and an interview with a mother as she pressed her to unveil her thoughts about Hillary Clinton. Connie Chung has a very interesting interviewing style where she seems really gentle at first and continues on to be so throughout the interview, but she would then follow up with a barrage of questions and in that way keeping the interviewer calm and still managing to get the necessary information from him or her. This has made Connie Chung famous and her style is viewed as a great exercise for public relations representatives in order to avoid scandal.
