Fox Business: Fox News hires 10 new employees to work in China
WASHINGTON — Fox Business announced Wednesday that it hired 10 new people to work at its Beijing bureau in the coming weeks as it seeks to expand its reach into China and other parts of the world.
Fox Business will continue to hire in China, the network said.
The hiring comes as Fox News, with its focus on business and the news, continues to seek ways to expand into the world’s second-largest economy.
The network has about 400 employees in China.
The new hires come as Fox is trying to improve its brand as it continues to grow its audience in China and in other Asian countries, where Fox News is a dominant force.
Fox News’ global reach is now the third-largest in the world, after CNN and MSNBC, according to Nielsen.
Fox News said it also has hired eight additional people to staff in China in the past two months, including three Chinese-American journalists.
Fox also hired a new English-language news producer and is hiring a new reporter, according a Fox News spokeswoman.
The Fox News China bureau will cover China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the mainland, according the news release.
Fox’s Beijing bureau is focused on news and current affairs, and has a team of nearly 20 people, Fox said.
The bureau also is part of Fox News Global, which focuses on China, India, Brazil, South Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean.
Fox has also announced that it is moving its Fox News digital operations from Fox News.
Fox says it is rebranding its online news operation as Fox Global News and has moved its digital operations to Fox News Asia.
