CBS’s Charlie D’Agata had a piece on “CBS This Morning” on international reaction — including TV news reporting — of Pres. Obama’s re-election. WATCH:
CNN senior international correspondent Arwa Damon, in Libya covering the spreading anti-American protests in the Middle East, reported on her visit to the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi this afternoon. “The buildings have been completely gutted, many of them burned, the walls scorched black, debris all over the floor,” she described. Watch:
CBS News correspondent Charlie D’Agata delivered quite the scoop this morning for “CBS This Morning,” video from inside the American consulate that was ransacked by attackers earlier this week, killing four, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.
D’Agata appeared live via satellite from Benghazi, Libya on this morning’s program.
Charlie D’Agata is clearly not afraid of heights. The CBS News correspondent reported live from the top of London’s Big Ben today, celebrating the 153rd anniversary of the day the famous clock starting ticking in 1859.
First on TVNewser: ABC News foreign correspondent Clarissa Ward is jumping to CBS News. Ward will join CBS in December, where she will report from Kabul, Afghanistan for all of the CBS News platforms and shows, including the “CBS Evening News” and “60 Minutes.” Eventually she will be based out of CBS’ London bureau.
Ward had been based in Asia for ABC News, covering events such as the Japanese tsunami and Russian elections. She last appeared on ABC in July. Before joining ABC she was a correspondent for Fox News Channel where she covered the Middle East.
In a memo to staff this morning announcing the hire, CBS News president David Rhodes said that given the situation in the Middle East, the company would have two correspondents reporting from the region, adding that “we are keeping that commitment until we see a significant change on the ground.”
CBS has also announced that Charlie D’Agata will become a full-time correspondent for CBS, based out of London. D’Agata had been London correspondent for CBS Newspath, and before that was CBS Radio’s chief overseas correspondent.
Rhodes’ full announcement to staff, after the jump.
Christiane Amanpour is among the network anchors packing their bags and heading for Japan. Amanpour will host “This Week” from Tokyo on Sunday, the only Sunday show host to do so. ABC News says “World News” weekend anchor David Muir, and correspondent Clarissa Ward are also en route to Japan to report on the aftermath of the earthquake and tsunami.
And here’s who is going, or already there, for CNN.
But it’s Amanpour who gives real meaning to the term globetrotter.
