ABC News’ Jake Tapper Moves To CNN

ABC News’ Senior White House Correspondent Jake Tapper is joining CNN as the anchor of a new weekday program and chief Washington correspondent, the network said today. The as-yet unnamed show is to debut in 2013, said CNN. “With CNN’s impeccable reporting during the elections and the exciting changes in the works for the network, this is a perfect time to join the CNN team,” said Tapper in a statement released by CNN. “I am excited about the prospect of working with both the new leadership and some old friends and colleagues.” CNN, which Jeff Zucker takes over at the end of next month, ended up in third place in 2012 among cable news networks, behind both Fox News and MSNBC.
