A CBS News correspondent made the announcement Thursday that he’s leaving the network — and leaving television. TVNewser reports that John Miller is leaving to join the New York Police Department.
Miller’s announcement confirms rumors that circulated earlier this month, as we reported previously. The move will reunite him with NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton.
“I never stay anywhere too long,” Miller said on WCBS-TV’s 5:30 p.m. newscast Thursday.
“Miller has bounced between jobs as a journalist and in law enforcement his entire career. His first job was as a reporter for WNEW (now Fox5) in New York City,” the story reports. “In 1985 he joined WNBC and left 9 years later to join Bratton at the NYPD. He returned to TV news as a correspondent for ABC News in 1995 where he remained for 7 years, being named ’20/20’ co-anchor in 2002. Miller left ABC to join Bratton at the LAPD in 2003 where he was head of the Counterterrorism and Criminal Intelligence. He joined CBS News in 2011.”
