      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.
