Lizzie O’Leary has been named CNN’s Aviation and Regulation Correspondent. The newly created position will cover all means of transportation in the country and the regulatory agencies of Washington, D.C.
O’Leary recently departed from Bloomberg Television, where she covered politics and economic policy. Sam Feist, CNN Washington bureau chief and senior vice president says, “Lizzie brings to the beat everything we’re looking for. She is a smart and experienced reporter, and I look forward to Lizzie joining our ranks as we expand reporting out of the Washington bureau.”
O’Leary is also well-known for her snarky and entertaining Twitter feed. She was among the few at Bloomberg who were permitted to get all loosey goosey with her thoughts.
