CNN poaches Metzler from US News

Nov 13, 2014

The tidal wave of recent hires over at CNN is far from over: next up, Rebekah Metzler joins as breaking news editor. Now a senior news editor for U.S. News & World Report, Metzler is slated to join the Turner network's Digital Politics team in her next role.

The cat finally let out of the bag, Metzler tacked on three exclamation points ("!!!") to this retweet from her new boss Rachel Smolkin: "Delighted to announce that @rebekahmetzler is joining @CNNPolitics as our PM breaking news editor. Welcome to the team!"

"Very sad for me that @rebekahmetzler is leaving @usnews for @CNN but happy for her and her next big adventure!" tweeted colleague Kimberly Leonard.

Don’t forget - if you change your job in journalism or move to a different news organization, be sure to email Kirsten (kirsten [at] sawhorsemedia [dot] com) so we can reflect your new title. News job changes only, please! Thanks!
