CNN has named John Vause (right) an anchor for CNN International.
Vause, who had been a correspondent in Beijing, has relocated to Atlanta where he will anchor in the mornings for the network, including on CNNI’s “World Report.”
Vause’s departure leaves a gap in the network’s Beijing bureau, which also recently lost Emily Chang to Bloomberg TV. TVNewser has learned that Stan Grant will be moving to Beijing to lead the bureau there as senior international correspondent.
The internal memo announcing the moves from senior VP of international newsgathering Parisa Khosravi is after the jump.
Stan Grant is now based at our Beijing bureau as a Senior International Correspondent. Stan has a great deal of reporting experience in China and the region; he was an anchor in Hong Kong and a correspondent for CNN in Beijing on previous assignments. We are excited about Stan’s return to China and his in-depth reporting from the region; he replaces John Vause, who has now relocated back to Atlanta as a CNNI anchor.
Congratulations to both of you.
