ABC News Washington correspondent Jeff Zeleny will be making the jump to CNN, where he will serve as a senior Washington correspondent for both the TV and digital.
Mike Allen of Politico reports:
Jeff Zeleny, ABC News senior Washington correspondent, will join CNN’s Washington Bureau and Political Unit as CNN senior Washington correspondent on Monday to cover ’16 for both television and digital, per industry sources. The papers were signed yesterday, letting Jeff out of his ABC contract. ABC News President James Goldston and CNN Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist plan a joint announcement later this morning. CNN poached J.Z., 41, because he has become a polished on-air correspondent and can also write long-form pieces for CNN.com.
