Brooke Brower Named Managing Editor of CNN Politics

By Chris Ariens 

Brooke Brower, who joined CNN last August in the political unit, has been named managing editor of CNN Politics.

Currently a senior producer with the TV network’s political unit, Brower spent 11 years at MSNBC as executive producer for Chuck Todd’s Daily Rundown and Meet the Press Daily as well as a producer for Hardball.

CNN Digital Politics’ executive editor Rachel Smolkin says the move “represents an important next step in fully integrating digital, newsgathering and television — and in building for an exciting and ambitious future.”


Current managing editor Zach Wolf will oversee programming and the quick-takes and data visualization teams, while Steven Sloan, managing editor for content, will now oversee long-form enterprise reporting.
