ABC News Adds Another New York Times Reporter to Ranks

For the second time in as many days, ABC News has hired a reporter from the New York Times. This morning we got word that Susan Saulny will join ABC’s Washington bureau as a correspondent.

Saulny has spent the last 12 years at The Times as a national reporter. She’s also contributed to the paper’s digital video efforts.

Says ABC News president Ben Sherwood: “A superb reporter and writer, Susan helped chronicle the race to the White House in 2012, breaking news and writing features, traveling across the country through Election Day.”

Saulny spent four years in the Times’ Chicago bureau covering politics, breaking news, and weather in the Midwest. The New Orleans native reported extensively on Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath in 2005.

On Monday, ABC announced it had hired Jeff Zeleny to report on politics and Capitol Hill. In an interview Monday, Zeleny told TVNewser the Times’ move into video will make his jump to TV a bit easier: “The web has prepared me a lot for this new fast-paced tempo of reporting from morning to evening,” he says. “I think it’s just an interesting moment in our reflective businesses that we’re doing more TV at The Times and ABC is doing great reporting.”
