We are delighted to announce that Yun-Hee Kim has been promoted to Tech Editor for Corporate and Personal Technology, an expanded role overseeing coverage of Silicon Valley’s biggest tech companies – including Apple, Amazon, Google and Microsoft – as well as our award-winning personal tech team in San Francisco and New York. This role serves as San Francisco bureau chief, managing a growing outpost that now includes more than a dozen reporters, columnists and editors.
Since joining The Post as Personal Tech Editor in 2021, Yun-Hee has displayed exceptional skill at executing The Post’s mission to cover Silicon Valley for citizens and consumers, delivering newsy scoops, insightful features, reader-friendly explainers, interactive quizzes and engaging videos. As founding editor of the Help Desk, our must-read destination for personal tech coverage, Yun-Hee has guided an ambitious project on tech and loneliness, a.k.a., “Plugged in, Left Out;” a series on the transformational shifts in the American workplace, a.k.a., “Work: Reimagined;” and columnist Geoffrey Fowler’s creative investigations into artificial intelligence, Tesla’s Autopilot and other technologies. In 2022, Yun-Hee launched Shira Ovide’s “The Tech Friend,” a sharp-witted, slightly grumpy, twice-weekly newsletter that helps readers make sense of the latest tech news and developments. Most recently, Yun-Hee led news coverage of the boardroom chaos at OpenAI, working virtually around the clock to chronicle the whirlwind ouster and reinstatement of Sam Altman as CEO.
Before coming to The Post, Yun-Hee spent more than two decades at the Wall Street Journal and Dow Jones, where she was a reporter and editor in New York, Hong Kong and Seoul covering technology and business, and leading news teams that covered Asia’s booming technology industry, the rise of Samsung and China’s internet giants. At the Journal, Yun-Hee also led an expansion into live tech events, serving as editorial director for the flagship “WSJ Tech Live” and conducting onstage interviews with numerous tech newsmakers.
