Former CNN reporter Bob Franken has joined Hearst Newspapers. A statement from Hearst reports that he’ll write a weekly D.C.-based column for the Hearst News Service, starting July 8. Hearst: “During his 20-plus-year career at CNN, Franken served as the network’s Capitol Hill correspondent, Supreme Court reporter, White House reporter and covered many major stories including the 9/11 attacks, two Iraq Wars, the Guantanamo Bay prison camp and presidential and congressional campaigns. A native of Baltimore, Franken began his broadcast career in Marshfield, Wis. He later worked in Charleston, W. Va., Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio, where reporters were required to shoot their own video.”

He worked for CNN from 1986 to 2007.

Richard Dunham, Washington bureau chief for Hearst Newspapers, in announcing Franken’s new position, said: “Bob is a perceptive observer of the Washington scene, with a sense of humor and a distinctly outside-the-Beltway perspective.”
