CBS Newspath correspondent Mola Lenghi has officially been called up to the big leagues, named a CBS News correspondent, based in New York, effective today.
Lenghi arrived at Newspath, the 24/7 newsgathering service for the network’s stations and broadcasters, in May 2017 after a three-year stint as a general assignment reporter at WUSA-TV, the CBS affiliate in D.C.
While at CBS Newspath, Lenghi has covered a wide variety of national and international stories, including a series of deaths of U.S. tourists in the Dominican Republic; the Trump administration; the ongoing lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies selling opioids; the sexual abuse case against and eventual death of billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein; the government shutdown; the shooting of Boston Red Sox great David Ortiz; and disastrous mudslides in California. He was also part of CBS News’ coverage of the 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas and coverage of Hurricanes Irma and Maria.
Prior to WUSA-TV, Lenghi spent two years as a reporter at KXAS-TV in Dallas-Fort Worth. The Coastal Carolina University grad began his broadcasting career at WPDE-TV in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Here’s Lenghi reporting for today’s CBS This Morning broadcast:
