CNN “Redeploying” DC Bureau Correspondents, McIntyre Leaves Network

cnn_12-12.jpgCNN announced today it is “redeploying some of its Washington-based correspondents” today, making Ed Henry the senior White House correspondent, Dana Bash the senior congressional correspondent and Jessica Yellin the national political correspondent, among others. The full release is after the jump.

In the release, CNN announced correspondent Chris Lawrence as new Pentagon correspondent, with Jamie McIntyre, who has covered the Pentagon since 1992, leaving the network.

In an internal memo, McIntyre wrote he and CNN “were unable to reach an agreement on another assignment, so after a friendly discussion, I decided to pursue other opportunities.”

Although McIntyre wrote “CNN and I both agreed it was time for a change,” he is the latest in a series of departures at CNN since CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein told the New York Observer, “We can afford more people on our air and off our air. So, goddamn it, we’re going to have more people,” on November 18.

Since then, Miles O’Brien has left the network and the entire science, space, environment and technology unit in Atlanta dismantled, correspondent Veronica De La Cruz will be leaving the network and head of on-air hiring Henry Mauldin exited as well, among others.

> Update: Politico’s Michael Calderone has Klein’s internal memo today.
