Constance Yu-Hwa Chung Povich (Chinese: 宗毓華; pinyin: Zōng Yùhuá; Cantonese Yale: Jung Yukwa; Hebrew: קוני צ'ונג; born August 20, 1946), known as Connie Chung, is an American journalist. She has been an anchor and reporter for the U.S. television news networks NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and MSNBC. Some of her more famous interview subjects include Claus von Bülow and U.S. Representative Gary Condit, whom Chung interviewed first after the Chandra Levy disappearance, and basketball legend Earvin "Magic" Johnson after he went public about being HIV-positive. In 1995 she was removed as CBS Evening News co-anchor after a controversial interview with a fireman which seemed inappropriately combative, during rescue efforts at the Oklahoma City bombing and her interview tactics to get Newt Gingrich's mother to admit her unguarded thoughts about Hillary Clinton.
