Plastics News has promoted reporter and Asia specialist Nina Ying Sun to assistant managing editor.
Sun joined the publication at its Akron headquarters in June 2005 after earning a bachelor's degree in journalism in Beijing, and two master's degrees at Ohio University, in journalism and international affairs.
Her duties remain largely unchanged, but the new title reflects the multifaceted role she has played in developing all aspects of PN's bilingual China products.
She has had an active hand in reporting, editing, marketing, circulation development, production, design, market research, vendor selection and contract negotiation for the Plastics News China eWeekly e-mail newsletter and its companion Web site, while also reporting for the newspaper.
Her China Blog is now the most-visited section on both the English- and Chinese-language sections of the PN China site.
