Clarissa Ward has jumped from CBS News to CNN, where she will serve as a senior international correspondent. “Clarissa Ward is an exceptional correspondent, a reporter and storyteller who has covered the world’s toughest assignments,” said CNN boss Jeff Zucker. “She is unique in her field. I am absolutely thrilled that she will join our exceptional team to bring home the most important stories of our time.”

She's a great reporter, and also a more than proficient anchor. I imagine she may pop up in the studio from time to time as she has filled in on CBS This Morning as a co-host and the CBS Evening News. A good signing by Zucker. They must have offered her a good package to tempt her from CBS News as they are doing some excellent news coverage these days.

In the past, CBS News was the cream of the crop.  Any guesses about what area she'll cover?

She tends to focus on the Middle East from what I can gather. I also remember her covering the Charlie Hebdo attacks in January.

Somehow I missed this on here. CBS' loss is CNN's gain!

Well, yeah, he is.  But frankly, I'd rather have an experienced correspondent.  I was spoiled by having Ben Wedeman here.

Another "Senior" title? Does CNN have ordinary correspondents? Kind of takes the shine off of the Ivans and Arwas.

I totally agree.  And what about Ben Wedeman?  Can't get better than him.  

 

While I like Atika Shubert, for example, she still has a long way to go to meet them and she shouldn't be a senior.  

 

This person, however, seems to have a ton of experience, so she might be up to their standards.   The comments above call her an excellent reporter.

Maybe so but she is not known outside the US. For the moment, she is nobody to me so has to prove herself!

As in any job, Senior should be earned.

I don't get the fuss. She has the resume. Would you expect a full professor with tenure who moves to a different university to start all over again at the bottom?

Personally, I think they should all just be called correspondents without anything else. The "seniors" can just get paid a lot more.

Ms. Ward is going to have a story all week "from the front lines in Syria" on TWRN.

She seems to have taken over NPW and Arwa Damon as the correspondent most likely to be sent to dangerous places in the ME.

I think Arwa does more work with her charity now though.

I like the trailer for Clarissa's Syrian coverage. The end shot is of her standing in Muslim apparel with it blowing in the wind, looking at ruins with an amrageddon blood red sky. Ironically, probably how ISIS would see the world once they succeed.

CNN aren't ones to sensationalise are they? :)

I don't think she is taking over from NPW and Arwa. It looks like they are trying to share around those assignments a little more.  Arwa has been doing such a great job on the migrant crisis - it makes sense to allow someone else to cover the war zone right now.

I think Clarissa is doing a great job. Good to see CNN send women into dangerous places when many other networks don't.
