Jeff Zeleny Joins ABC News as Senior Washington Correspondent
‘New York Times' reporter to cover Congress and politics
By Andrea Morabito -- Broadcasting & Cable, 2/25/2013 10:17:18 AM
He will report for all ABC News broadcasts and platforms and contribute regularly to This Week with George Stephanopoulos. In a note to staff announcing his hire, ABC News president Ben Sherwood noted Zeleny's "exclusive reporting and prolific writing," including breaking the news that President Obama would support a Democratic Super PAC in the 2012 campaign.
Zeleny joins ABC News as the network is refreshing its political bench following the 2012 election. After political director Amy Walter and senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper left at the end of last year, Jonathan Karl, Martha Raddatz, Jim Avila and Matthew Dowd have taken on larger roles at the D.C. bureau.
Reports last week said that New York Times reporter Susan Saulny was also being courted by ABC News, though that has yet to be confirmed by the network.
