Jay Shaylor, who has executive produced The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer since 2013, is leaving CNN, and joining CBS News’ revamped Evening News with Norah O’Donnell, which is about to make its move to Washington, DC, where it will begin broadcasting.
Shaylor will begin his new job in October. Before joining CNN, Shaylor worked on ABC’s Good Morning America as a senior producer.
“Jay is an innovative producer who brings experience and energy to the team,” O’Donnell said in a release. “I look forward to partnering with him as we continue to build the CBS Evening News for the future and begin a new chapter of this broadcast’s storied history in Washington.”
CNN hasn’t named Shaylor’s replacement.
