Nina Ying Sun has been named managing editor of Plastics News China, which includes two related digital products — the “PN China eWeekly” email newsletter, and the related website at www.pnchina.com. Both are offered in English and simplified Chinese.
Sun, who works from Columbus, Ohio, for the Akron-based publication, retains her existing duties as an assistant managing editor for Plastics News.
“This change helps to better reflect the key role Nina has played since day one on our various China products,” said Robert Grace, PN associate publisher and editorial director.
Sun joined Plastics News as a reporter and Asia specialist in mid-2005, just as the publication was launching its China enewsletter and website.
She was promoted to assistant ME for the newspaper in 2008.
Sun has dual master's degrees in journalism and international affairs from Ohio University.
A native of China, Sun previously had earned her bachelor's degree in journalism, with a minor in economics, from Beijing's Renmin University of China.
She has worked as a reporter for Hong Kong's Chinese- language newspaper Ta Kung Pao and was a front-page editor of the overseas edition of People's Daily, China's largest newspaper.
