Boris Sanchez has joined CNN in New York City as a correspondent, the network announced a short time ago. Sanchez joins from KDVR in Denver, where he served as an anchor/reporter since 2012.
Meanwhile, NYC-based correspondent Rosa Flores will be re-locating to the Chicago bureau later this summer, where she will work closely with new Chicago bureau correspondent Ryan Young. However, although she’s moving to CNN Chicago, VP of newsgathering Terence Burke said she will continue her Latin American enterprise reporting.
The internal memo, obtained by TVNewser:
I have two exciting correspondent updates to share with you.
We are delighted to announce that Boris Sanchez has joined CNN as a correspondent in our New York Bureau effective immediately.
Boris joins us from KDVR in Denver where he has been an outstanding anchor and reporter since 2012.
Prior to that, he worked at ABC¹s affiliate in Redding, California.
Boris is a graduate of Syracuse University and he calls Miami home.
We are also very pleased to announce that we’re bolstering our Midwest news gathering operation. Rosa Flores will be moving from New York to Chicago later this summer, joining Ryan Young to create a formidable team.
In her time at CNN, Rosa has proven herself to be a terrific field correspondent, always finding unique and compelling angles to her breaking news assignments.
In addition to her domestic reporting, Rosa will continue to cover breaking news and enterprise stories in Latin America and will be reporting on Pope Francis’ travels to South America, Cuba and the U.S. later this year.
Please join me in welcoming Boris, and congratulating Rosa on her new assignment.
