CNN is making changes in the Washington bureau ahead of the 2014 midterms and 2016 Presidential elections. Michelle Kosinski is joining the network as White House correspondent and Dana Bash and Pamela Brown will add new responsibilities, bureau chief Sam Feist has announced.
Kosinski joins CNN from NBC News, where she has worked since 2005, most recently as a London-based foreign correspondent.
Bash, CNN’s chief Congressional correspondent, will also serve as the network’s lead reporter covering the 2016 field of Republican Presidential candidates. Brown, who joined CNN last year, has been named Justice correspondent, replacing Joe Johns, who was promoted to senior Washington correspondent last month.
“We have put together a powerhouse team of outstanding journalists whose reporting is second to none,” Feist said in a statement. “With Michelle, Dana, Pamela, Brianna [Keilar] and Suzanne [Malveaux] as well as our large roster of accomplished journalists, CNN is positioned to deliver the most in-depth, high caliber and informative political coverage anywhere.”
