Lisa Desjardins, a former Capitol Hill correspondent with CNN, who produced the best exit video in recent memory, is joining PBS NewsHour as Politics Reporter and Editor. And she produced an equally awesome new job video.
Desjardins, who starts Monday, was laid off from CNN in August after 9 years with the network. She worked first with CNN Radio and later CNN TV. Before CNN, Desjardins reported for the AP, Reuters and WIS-TV in Columbia, SC.
“Lisa is a talented and deeply-sourced political reporter with experience in television, both on and off air, radio, digital and print,” writes PBS Newshour EP Sara Just in a note to staff.
