In this role she contributes on- and off-air reporting to all ABC News broadcasts, ABC News Radio and ABC NewsOne, the network's affiliate news service, and also regularly files for ABC News' digital platforms, including ABCNEWS.com, ABC News NOW and ABC News' webcasts. In 2008, Cho was the first and only network journalist to report from inside Myanmar following the devastating cyclone that ravaged the country. She spent nearly a week reporting from the worst-hit areas in the Irrawaddy Delta, filing for "World News with Diane Sawyer" and its webcast, and for "Good Morning America." Since joining ABC News in 1999 as a producer in the Seoul bureau, Cho has contributed reporting to all ABC News broadcasts and platforms, including "World News," "Nightline" and "Good Morning America."

Additionally she has traveled to many North Korean cities, including Pyongyang, Shinpo, Mt. Kumkang and Gaesong, and has interviewed hundreds of North Korean refugees. She also contributed to The Washington Post as a special Seoul correspondent. She reported and wrote articles primarily on North Korea-related issues, as well as Korean politics, the economy and society. Cho's broadcasting career began in 1994 at Asia Business News based in Singapore, which later merged with CNBC Asia. There she worked as producer and, later, as correspondent in Hong Kong and Seoul, traveling extensively around Asia to cover business stories.
