Yuri Nagano is an American multimedia journalist. Using her native-level Japanese skills, she has edited and reported from Tokyo and California for major U.S. news organizations including the Bloomberg Industry Group, Los Angeles Times, New York Times and the Associated Press for more than a decade, covering everything from business, politics to sports, both enterprise and breaking.

Born in Tokyo, Nagano grew up in San Francisco and the Los Angeles area from age two. Nagano majored in Japanese Art History at the University of Tokyo. Hoping to make art documentaries, she joined the public network in Japan, NHK, upon graduation as a TV producer. There, she fell in love with the world of journalism.

After securing a master’s degree in journalism at the University of California at Berkeley, Nagano moved on to edit and report for an online news startup in the Silicon Valley. This first foray failed, but she learned from the experience and has been reporting for various news organizations, large and small, since.
