NEW YORK (AP) -- Award-winning foreign correspondent Clarissa Ward is joining CNN, the network announced Monday. She will be senior international correspondent, based in London.
With this move, Ward concludes a four-year stint at CBS News, where she reported for programs including "60 Minutes" and the "CBS Evening News," and played a notable role in that network's hard-news mission.
Ward has covered major international events for nearly a decade, most recently from Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Afghanistan. She also reported extensively on the revolution in Ukraine, the Russian incursion into Georgia and the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
Before joining CBS News in 2011, she was an ABC News correspondent based in Beijing and Moscow, and a correspondent for Fox News, where she reported from Beirut and Baghdad.
