CBS News has added award-winning journalist Janet Shamlian as a Houston-based correspondent who will contribute reporting for CBS News programming, including CBS This Morning, the CBS Evening News, and the network’s 24/7 streaming news service CBSN.

Before joining CBS News, Shamlian spent a decade at NBC News, where she reported for Today, NBC Nightly News and MSNBC.
