Subject: Cristina Alesci joins CNN/CNNMoney

I am thrilled to share with you that Cristina Alesci will be joining CNN
and the new CNNMoney team as a correspondent beginning next month.

Cristina comes to us from Bloomberg Television where her industry-leading
coverage of high-profile deals and major dealmakers frequently made
headlines. As Bloomberg TV’s Deals Reporter, Cristina also covered New
York City’s start-up community and the sports, music and entertainment
industries, and contributed to Businessweek and Bloomberg Markets
Magazine.

At CNN she’ll join our talented roster of business news reporters and
anchors as we reshape and relaunch CNNMoney across all platforms to
deliver the money news that matters most to you.

Cristina was responsible for breaking news on some of the biggest and
most competitive takeover battles, private equity deals and bankruptcies
of the last five years, including the struggle for Dell, the buyout of
Neiman Marcus and the collapse of MF Global. She also covered some of
the hottest initial public offerings since the financial crisis,
including Facebook, Twitter, and SeaWorld.

Her extensive reporting on private equity and the issue of carried
interest also contributed to the debate on income tax reform during the
2012 presidential election and was cited by numerous publications and
other media organizations.

Before joining Bloomberg, Cristina worked at Pfizer Inc. in New York and
law firm Sidley Austin LLP. She received an M.A. in Journalism with
honors from The City University of New York’s Graduate School of
Journalism, a B.S. in Criminal Justice (magna cum laude) from Pace
University, and holds a post-baccalaureate certificate in business from
Columbia University.

Please join me in welcoming Cristina to CNN and the CNNMoney team.
