CNN Newsource Hires New DC Face

Lah-Kyung.jpgIn a move aimed at expanding the network’s affiliate capabilities, CNN today announced that it has hired Kyung Lah as a correspondent for its Washington CNN Newsource bureau. According to Paul Crum, executive director of news operations for CNN/U.S., Lah will serve as a national correspondent and will report live from breaking news events and from Washington, providing live reports for the 800ish CNN Newsource partner stations.

“This appointment bolsters the CNN Newsource ranks with an award-winning correspondent based at the important Newsource D.C. bureau,” Crum said. “She is a solid, enterprising reporter adept at covering breaking news stories, and she also has the ability to seek out stories that our affiliates will find interesting and useful.”

Lah, you may remember, departed abruptly (cough, she was fired, cough) from KNBC in LA in March after an affair with a senior producer came to light.

More resume details after the jump.


Lah comes to CNN Newsource from KNBC-Los Angeles, where she served as a morning news reporter for the Today in L.A. and as a midday anchor. At KNBC, Lah covered such stories as the California wildfires and the Kobe Bryant and Michael Jackson trials. Prior to that, Lah was a reporter at WBBM, the CBS affiliate in Chicago. Lah also worked as a general assignment reporter and long-form investigative reporter at ABC affiliate KGTV in San Diego and won a regional Emmy award for specialty reporting. Lah’s first reporting position was at WWMT, the CBS affiliate in Kalamazoo, Mich.
