CBS News today announced that Jill Jackson, who’s been with the bureau since 2007, is set to join “Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer” as a senior producer.
Jackson served as a Capitol Hill producer in CBS’s Washington bureau before joining “CBS This Morning” in 2013. During the 2010 midterm elections, Jackson shifted to the role of senior political producer, and at the Republican and Democratic national conventions in 2012, she produced for Norah O’Donnell’s coverage.
“Jill is a rising star in the bureau and we couldn’t be happier to have her,” said Schieffer. “There’s no better way to learn Washington than to spend your days chasing down the newsmakers on Capitol Hill and Jill’s years there will serve her well as she takes on her new responsibilities. She knows the players and she knows news. You can’t ask for more than that and we’re lucky to have her on the team.”
