Jake Tapper to leave ABC News for CNN
Jake Tapper, ABC News’ White House correspondent, is leaving the network to work for CNN.
Tapper will be CNN’s chief White House correspondent and will host a weekday program.
“A ferocious reporter – and now a best-selling author – he has built a reputation as one of the most prolific and multi-talented journalists on the beat, scoring scoop after scoop,” said ABC News President Ben Sherwood.
Jonathan Karl was named as the chief White House correspondent for ABC News.
