CNN Ups Alex Wellen

wellenx.jpgCongrats to friend of FishbowlDC, CNN’s Alex Wellen. The network announced this week that Wellen has been promoted to the role of Senior Executive Producer of Integrated Programming.

CNN Sr. VP Bart Feder said in a email announcing the promotion:

“In this role, Alex will be domestic television’s senior editorial liaison with our partners at CNN.com, CNN Mobile and Audience Experience. There’s no one better to embrace this mission than Alex. He has brought relentless energy and creativity to every assignment that’s come his way during his four years at CNN — including playing an instrumental role in our 2008 Election success through the development of CNN Politics.com and the Political Ticker.”

FishbowlDC chatted with Alex about his new novel “Lovesick” over the summer. Check it out here.
