CNN, CBS Add D.C. Newsers for Trump Coverage

By Chris Ariens 

CNN is bringing on April Ryan and CBS News has signed Ed O’Keefe to contributor contracts.

Both are longtime D.C. correspondents. Ryan, pictured with Greta Van Susteren, is White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, while O’Keefe is a congressional reporter for the Washington Post.

Ryan, who was named today to Adweek’s Political Power Players list, has covered the White House since Bill Clinton was president.


O’Keefe, who has been with the Post since 2005, had his new role announced by Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning: “It sounds good when you say it,” O’Keefe said to Rose.
