CNN officially hires Kate Riley as sports anchor

Kate Riley, who has been freelancing with CNN since June 1, has officially joined CNN International as an anchor for World Sport, reports TVNewser.

CNN senior vice president Bill Galvin points to her coverage of the Women’s World Cup as a “special highlight” of her work for CNN International during her freelancing stint.

Congratulations to Kate Riley, who is officially joining the CNN World Sport team in a full-time anchor role.

During her summer freelance stint with us, Kate established herself as a valuable contributor both in studio and in the field. Her on-location coverage of the Women’s World Cup in Canada was a special highlight.

Kate brings a wealth of experience to her new role, having covered international sports across Europe, the Middle East and now North America. Prior to joining CNN International, Kate anchored with both Sky and the BBC. She has a Masters degree in Broadcast Journalism from Cardiff University and speaks French, German and basic Arabic.

Kate was born in California but spent her childhood in Hong Kong, Brunei, Cameroon and the UK, where a lifelong allegiance to the Ipswich Town Football Club was formed. We’re excited that Kate is now calling Atlanta home and enjoying her daily run along the Beltline & Piedmont Park.

Please join me in wishing Kate the best of luck with CNN World Sport!
