While the Trump administration might not be a fan of Jim Acosta‘s work, CNN certainly is.

Acosta, who has covered the Obama and Trump White Houses for CNN since 2013, has been named the network’s chief White House correspondent.

Pamela Brown will move from covering the DOJ to the White House beat, joining Jeff Zeleny as a CNN senior White House correspondent.

Sara Murray will take on Brown’s old role, moving from Trumpland to the Justice Department beat, focusing her efforts on covering the Russia investigation.

Senior Washington correspondent Joe Johns moves from the White House team to cover the upcoming midterms and national politics.

Abby Phillip and Boris Sanchez will remain in their roles as White House correspondents, along with White House reporter Kaitlan Collins.

All of these moves are effective this Monday, Jan. 15.
