Bloomberg TV international desk editor Mosheh Oinounou is leaving the company to join CBS’ “The Early Show” as a senior producer, based in Washington DC.
Before joining Bloomberg, Oinounou was a producer for “Fox News Sunday,” and a political producer for Fox News Channel. Interestingly enough, Oinounou has been following David Rhodes as he has moved from organization to organization. Rhodes was an executive at FNC before joining Bloomberg as the head of Bloomberg TV. Earlier this year he became president of CBS News.The memo announcing his hire from “Early Show” EP Batt Humphreys is after the jump.
Oinounou’s hire is the latest in a string of moves designed to bolster the morning show’s political coverage in advance of the 2012 presidential election. The program has held town halls with political leaders, and earlier this month the National Journal profiled the program’s political ambitions.
