By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

A former KYW anchor, who left in 2018 to join CNN as a Washington correspondent, will now serve as the network’s congressional correspondent.

Jessica Dean will transition into the new role beginning Jan. 20, when President-elect Joe Biden is inaugurated.

She will be one of five journalists covering the Congress in the Biden administration, as part of several CNN promotions and new appointments that the network announced on Monday.

Dean shared CNN’s announcement on Twitter.

She was formerly the main evening anchor at CBS 3.
