Dana Bash Promoted to Chief Congressional Correspondent at CNN

Dana Bash has been promoted to chief Congressional correspondent at CNN.

“Week in and week out, Dana’s reporting and analysis make our air better. And we saw it again yesterday with Dana’s relentless efforts to land interviews in the Capitol Rotunda during our Inauguration coverage,” CNN Washington Bureau chief Sam Feist wrote in a note to staffers Tuesday evening.

Bash moved to Capitol Hill from the White House beat in 2006. Before her on-air position with the White House unit, she was the Capitol Hill producer for CNN as well as an editor in the network’s Washington bureau. Her promotion is effective immediately.
