TVNewser has obtained the following memo from ABC News president David Westin. Interestingly, the network is keeping a correspondent on non-candidate Hillary Clinton.
As we move into the next phase of this historic race for the presidency, I wanted to make you aware of our political assignments for the General Election. David Wright and Ron Claiborne will cover the McCain Campaign with off-air Bret Hovell. Jake Tapper and John Berman will report on Obama with off-air Sunlen Miller. Kate Snow will continue to cover Hillary Clinton with Eloise Harper, and Jan Crawford Greenburg will report on the as yet to be named vice presidential candidates. Together with our outstanding political unit and the support of the entire news division, I know that ABC News will continue to lead in breaking the big stories and providing the finest reporting for all our platforms on the race for the White House.
