Van Scott Takes His PR Talents from CNN to ABC

XWTwhSLCHere’s a quick bit of industry movement on this fine Friday. Van Scott, the chief contact for our sister site TVNewser, has left his position at the original Cable News Network to join ABC.

In his own words, he “will be joining ABC News as the Communications Director for Diane Sawyer, ‘World News,’ and ABC News politics, election coverage and breaking news” as of next week.

We wish him the best in his new position—and we have no doubt that he will continue to provide only the finest quality grist for the TV news mill.
