 John Yang Biography

He returned to Washington, DC in August 2004 after two years as ABC News' Middle East correspondent, based in Jerusalem. During his time there, Mr. Yang covered many major developments in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including Palestinian suicide bombings in Israel and Israeli military operations in the Palestinian territories. In June 2003, he reported alongside Peter Jennings at the landmark summit meeting between President George W. Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and then-Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas in Aqaba, Jordan. On previous assignments in the region, he spent several weeks reporting on the Israeli military operation in the Jenin Refugee Camp in the Palestinian West Bank, and on the final days of the standoff at the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

While in the Middle East, Mr. Yang reported from post-war Iraq, traveling extensively throughout the country. He was in Najaf near the Imam Ali Mosque when it was attacked with a powerful car bomb, killing more than 120 people. He conducted one of the first American television interviews of captured al Qaeda fighters imprisoned by the Kurds along the Iran-Iraq border. Other reporting trips took him to Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.

Mr. Yang joined ABC News as a Washington-based correspondent in 1999, covering politics and general news stories for ABC News' network news programs and ABCNEWS.com. In 2000 he covered the campaign of then-Texas Gov. George W. Bush during the Republican primaries. That fall he covered then-Vice President Al Gore's presidential campaign through Election Day and the Florida recount.

In the days following the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, Mr. Yang reported from the Pentagon and was part of the ABC News team honored with both a George Foster Peabody Award and an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award.

Prior to joining ABC News, Mr. Yang was a reporter and editor at The Washington Post for nearly 10 years. As a reporter he covered Congress and the White House, and as an editor directed coverage of economic policy in the paper's business section and oversaw political features in the Post's Style section. Throughout his print career, he covered Congress and national politics. He previously worked for The Boston Globe, Time magazine and The Wall Street Journal.

Born in Chillicothe, Ohio, Mr. Yang is a 1980 cum laude graduate of Wesleyan University.
