CNN senior reporter on politics and media, Dylan Byers, is departing the network, reports the New York Post. He is heading to NBC News and MSNBC to serve in a similar role.
His title will be NBC News’ senior media correspondent, and he will continue to cover media, technology and entertainment from Los Angeles. He will primarily serve as an on-air talent for NBC News and MSNBC, but will report online as well.
NBC News president Noah Oppenheim said, “The impact of big tech is far-reaching – changing our culture, politics, commerce and much more. Naturally, Dylan will focus on Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google, and Netflix, but he’ll also keep a sharp eye on emerging players.”
Byers, who penned Pacific, CNN’s Silicon Valley and Hollywood-centric newsletter, will produce a similar daily newsletter for NBC and MSNBC.
He joined CNN in 2015. In a tweet announcing his departure, he said, “I’m grateful to [CNN Worldwide president] Jeff Zucker, [CNN.com general manager] Andrew Morse & CNN for the last three years.”
