Two of CNN’s foreign correspondents are getting a promotion.
Arwa Damon (far right) and Sara Sidner (far left) have both been promoted to Senior International Correspondent. In addition, Sidner moves from CNN New Delhi, where she’s been based since joining CNN in 2007, to CNN Jerusalem.
Damon has been reporting on the Arab Spring for the last couple of years from Syria, Libya, Egypt and Lebanon, where she’s based. Sidner also reported extensively from Libya — and had this harrowing experience covering the fall of Gadhafi. She also reported on the Mumbai terrorist attacks, as they happened in 2008.
TVNewser was at CNN HQ in December when many of CNN’s foreign correspondents, including Sidner and Damon, gathered to tape a special reflecting on the year in foreign coverage.
