More job moves coming from the CNN Washington DC bureau.

Eric Sherling, the former EP of “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer” before leaving for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” is returning to CNN as director of Washington programming.

Sherling will oversee Washington political programming including, “The Situation Room,” “John King, USA,” “State of the Union with Candy Crowley” and “Reliable Sources.”

“We are delighted to welcome Eric back to Washington and to the CNN family,” said bureau chief Sam Feist. “His experience speaks for itself. He’ll be an invaluable asset as the network heads into the 2012 election cycle.”

Sherling first joined CNN in 2000 as a producer in the network’s Atlanta headquarters. He left for ABC News two years ago this week.
