LOS ANGELES (TVBS News) — Terry Tang, born in Taiwan, was officially appointed on Monday (April 8) as the first female editor-in-chief of the Los Angeles Times in its 142-year history.

Tang stepped in as interim editor-in-chief following the departure of Kevin Merida in January 2024 and began restructuring the newsroom. As editor-in-chief, Tang will place greater emphasis on traditional news reporting.

 

Tang graduated from Yale University with a bachelor's degree in economics and earned a law degree from New York University Law School. She worked for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) for two years, overseeing publications and editorial duties.

Tang has a long history with The New York Times, where she held various positions over a 20-year period. She joined the Los Angeles Times in 2019 as deputy editor of the opinion section, a role she will continue to oversee.

Patrick Soon-shiong, the billionaire owner of the Los Angeles Times, praised Tang's leadership abilities in a statement. Her appointment marks a significant milestone for the newspaper, which is the largest in California.
