CNN has promoted two of its staffers, Kristen Holmes and Allie Malloy to their White House team, announced supervising producer Antoine Sanfuentes in a staff memo. Holmes and Malloy will join the team as producer and video producer, respectively.
Both are relatively new to the District, as Holmes has been in the area for about a year now — working as an editorial producer for “The Lead with Jake Tapper” — and Malloy, who has been covering “all things political,” moved to their DC Bureau in August.
Below is the full memo from Sanfuentes.
Please welcome Kristen Holmes and Allison Malloy to CNN’s White House team.
Kristen Holmes joins the team as Producer . Kristen joined CNN as an intern for Piers Morgan Live in New York nearly three years ago after graduating from Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism. She has been in DC for the past year, largely working as an editorial producer for “The Lead with Jake Tapper.” While in DC, she also worked as a producer on several projects with Katie Couric at Yahoo. Kristen attended Northwestern University and spent two years as an elementary school teacher in Chicago through Teach for America. She grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Allie Malloy has joined the team as Video Producer. Allie started her career at CNN as a News Assistant on the assignment desk in New York before moving to the D.C. Bureau this past August to cover all things political . She graduated from New York University where she double majored in journalism and political science.
Both join our seasoned White House Producer, Kevin Liptak who has taken on more responsibility. Since joining CNN’s White House team in 2013, he’s traveled to nearly 30 states and eight countries with President Obama. Before joining the White House unit, he covered the 2012 presidential election as a member of the CNN political unit. He joined CNN as a production assistant on The Situation Room.
I am delighted to be working with such a terrific team.
