Kyra Phillips is leaving CNN and joining ABC News based in Washington, DC, according to TVNewser. She has been with CNN and HLN since 1999, but was recently sidelined and basically taken off of CNN’s air.
“Her passion for journalism is matched by her incredible generosity of spirit. She volunteers for a variety of organizations that help those in need, including the Global Down Syndrome Foundation and programs supporting military families,” ABC News boss James Goldston said in the announcement memo.
Phillips lives in DC with her husband, John Roberts, chief White House correspondent over at Fox News.
She begins at ABC today.
