CNN poaches Clarissa Ward

Foreign correspondent Clarissa Ward just left CBS News for CNN. After four years at CBS, during which time Ward reported for programs such as Evening News and 60 Minutes, she joins CNN as a senior international correspondent based in London.

"Well. it's official! Very excited indeed!!!" she tweets.

"BOOM! @clarissaward comes to @CNN, where it is ALL happening! (fun fact, between the 2 of us, we speak 6 languages!)" John Berman responds to the news.

Daily Beast's Nancy Youssuf reflects, "How lucky is #CNN!"

Pretty lucky, we'd say.
