CNN’s Spellman Returns to D.C. for New Job

Leave it to famed internet news junkie Marty Rudolf to get the scoop for us on Jim Spellman, the Denver-based CNN correspondent who is moving back to Washington.

After Marty asked him what he was up to (he was also writing Morgan Fairchild to ask her “how’s she’s been”), Spellman last night wrote on Twitter, “@Marty2634 tomorrow is my last day. Moving to DC to be. Correspondent At CCTV, an international network from China.”

CCTV stands for China Central Television. It’s the predominant state TV broadcaster in mainland China.

Spellman went to school at the University of Maryland in College Park. He also played guitar in High Back Chairs and Julie Ocean and drums in Velocity Girl, an indie rock band that reportedly split up in 1996.

UPDATE: Shame on us! We didn’t realize our sister site, TVNewser, had the news on Spellman a week ago. See here.
