CNN has named Dylan Byers a senior reporter for media and politics. Byers most recently worked for Politico, as a media reporter and lead author of the On The Media blog. Previously, Byers worked for Adweek.
“Dylan comes to us from Politico where he distinguished himself as a fearless reporter on all things media, willing to take on political figures and media organizations,” wrote CNNMoney editor Lex Haris and CNN Politics editor Rachel Smolkin, in a memo. “He’s fast, provocative—and makes news that people want to talk about.”
Byers’ appointment is effective Sept. 14.
