CBS News has hired CNN international correspondent Vladimir Duthiers as a correspondent for the network, CBS News President David Rhodes announced today.
Duthiers will move from Nigeria, where he was for CNN, to New York, where he will work out of the CBS broadcast center.
Most recently, Duthiers has been covering the story of the 200 kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls. TVNewser spoke with Duthiers about it in May: “You’re reminded of your enormous responsibility as a reporter to make sure people know what these families are going through, even if you don’t have the images and videos,” Duthiers told us.
Duthiers began as a CNN production assistant in 2009. Before that, he spent 18 years in global finance.
