CNN’s Zain Verjee Comes To D.C.

B&C today is reporting that CNNI anchor Zain Verjee has been reassigned to Washington as a general correspondent for CNN.

She’s been at CNNI since 2000 and currently anchors “Your World Today” with Jim Clancy, which U.S. viewers can catch at noon.

“Verjee will exit CNNI Friday, take off two weeks, then return April 16 as a CNN general correspondent, based in Washington, according to a network source,” B&C says.

She will likely be the first addition to the Washington press corps who speaks both Gujarati and Kiswahili.
