About

Michelle Toh

Hi!

I’m a journalist at CNN in Hong Kong.

As a programming editor for CNNMoney, I write about company news in Asia, come up with programming ideas and help develop mobile strategy for CNN MoneyStream, CNNMoney's EPPY Award-nominated app for business news.

Before that, I was the Hong Kong editor of Fortune magazine and a web producer for Fox News Channel in New York City.

I spent my formative years in Hong Kong and Malaysia and graduated with a degree in journalism from the University of Southern California. I am also a proud member of the Asian American Journalists Association.

My work has run the gamut from interviewing undocumented immigrant minors to profiling a billionaire CEO, featured in outlets including TIME, USA Today, Huffington Post, Global Post, Fusion and Harper's Bazaar. In my spare time, I enjoy crossing things off what I call the #GreatAmericanBucketList, learning new skills and spending an inordinate amount of time on Instagram.
