FORA.tv Speaker - Ti-Hua Chang
Award-winning journalist Ti-Hua Chang returned to WCBS-TV where he worked earlier in his career to serve as a general assignment and investigative reporter in January 2005. He quickly distinguished himself with his work. Among other things, he won a 2005 Edward R. Murrow Award for a piece entitled" Police Voyeurs" about officers using a helicopter and high tech infra-red equipment to spy repeatedly on a couple's passionate embraces on a pitch-black rooftop.
Before rejoining WCBS, Chang was a reporter with WNBC. On 9/11, he was the first reporter to inform the public on the number of causalities that day quoting Mayor Giuliani and city officials. In 1996, he won the prestigious Peabody Award for a series of reports he filed on accused drug-dealing murderers who escaped to the Dominican Republic. In 2004, he won a New York Press Club award for his reports on a shooting at City Hall. Chang's investigative reports include the death of civil rights leader Medgar Evers. In his report, Chang discovered four new witnesses to the Evers murder, eventually leading to the re-opening of the famous case.
Chang joined WNBC from WNYC-TV, New York, where he was host of his own talk show, New York Hotline. Previously, he was an investigative producer at ABC News.
