CNN’s Washington bureau chief and SVP announced today that a new general assignment correspondent is joining the network. Sam Feist announced that Athena Jones will begin immediately, reporting out of the D.C. bureau.
Said Feist: “Athena will be an outstanding addition to our political team. Her experience covering the White House, politics and international affairs are a perfect fit for the Washington bureau.”
Jones, a Harvard University graduate with a master’s from Columbia, was previously with NBC as a White House producer and an on-air reporter for MSNBC and NBC News. She also has experience with CNN as a freelance segment producer.
