Ri Chun-hee, North Korean anchorwoman

One of the most recognizable North Korean faces is that of Ri Chun-hee, for many years the lead anchor of Korean Central Television in P’yŏngyang.  She announced to the nation and to the world the deaths of Kim Il-sung and Kim Jong-il. 

Anyhow, recently CCTV9, China’s national English television service, conducted an interview with Ri Chun-hee at the Korea Central Television studios in P’yŏngyang.  She’s finally retiring after more than 40 years on the job.  If you care to see the interview, click here.
