CNN has named Andy Scholes as a full-time sports correspondent. Scholes has been working part-time at CNN for a few months (and living out of the Omni Hotel, according to an internal email announcing his promotion), covering sports-related stories for the channel.
In his new role he will be covering sports and sports news for CNN, and will also be doing the “Bleacher Report” segment on “New Day.” Before joining CNN, he was a sports anchor and reporter for CW affiliate KDAF in Dallas.
Scholes joins Rachel Nichols on the sports beat. Nichols joined CNN and Turner Sports from ESPN earlier this year, and is the channel’s lead sports reporter.
