Nov 12, 2014

CNN just created a new position, too: seasoned pro Laura Bernardini will soon be the network's first DC Director of News Coverage. Presently the supervising producer for its White House unit, in her next role Bernardini will take charge of the city's assignment desk, network pool responsibilities and bureau field resources.

"Off to Beijing w/reading material #cnnwhitehouse (last trip for me)," was the closest she came to a reveal on Twitter.

"ABOUT TIME: Good news from CNN," reacted supervising producer Kim Segal in Miami.
