What Happened To Connie Chung?
Connie Chung was one of the most well-known journalists in the US, if not the entire world, in the 1990s. Chung began her career in Washington, D.C., where she had grown up and attended school, amid the Watergate era. Later, she moved to NBC and then to CBS, where she co-anchored the CBS Evening News with Dan Rather and had her own programme, Eye to Eye with Connie Chung. Chung also made history by becoming only the second woman and the first Asian to preside over a nightly newscast in the US. Then, very immediately after reaching the top of the pile, she disappeared.
Even though Chung is completely retired, she and Povich are the owners of The Flathead Beacon, a newspaper in Montana where they live. They also shared hosting duties for the MSNBC programme Weekends with Maury and Connie in 2006. The show gained popularity for Chung’s farewell musical number when it was canceled after six months, in which she performed an off-key cover of “Thanks for the Memories” while perched atop a piano and clad in an evening gown.
What Is Connie Chung Doing Now?
Following her exit from CBS, Connie Chung spent the next ten years jumping from network to network, spending three years with ABC until getting her own show, Connie Chung Tonight, on CNN. That show had poor ratings and was terminated in 2003 at the start of the Iraq War after only a short run of around a year. Chung and her husband, Maury Povich, co-hosted Weekends with Maury and Connie in 2006. In June 1995, the couple together adopted a son.
Chung is currently completely retired. She hasn’t hosted a show since 2006, while occasionally appearing on various TV panels and interviews. However, she doesn’t stop advocating for the changes she thinks the news business, and particularly television news, still needs to undergo. In 2019, she stated to The Hollywood Reporter, “I don’t believe women should be intimidated by the threat of losing their jobs.” When discussing sexism in the industry, Chung said, “I think there needs to be a better cleansing of all the news organizations. The attitudes still have to change to some level of parity between men and women.”
