Bill Carter Joins CNN

Veteran New York Times TV reporter Bill Carter, who took that paper's buyout offer in 2014, has joined CNN.

Carter will be a contributor and analyst on media stories across CNN's TV and digital platforms. CNN points out that the move reunited Carter with another ex-NYT staffer, Brian Stelter.

Before joining the New York Times in 1989, Carter was a TV critic for the Baltimore Sun.

It will not be new territory for Carter, who has appeared on the network numerous times.

Contributing editor John Eggerton has been an editor and/or writer on media regulation, legislation and policy for over four decades, including covering the FCC, FTC, Congress, the major media trade associations, and the federal courts. In addition to Multichannel News and Broadcasting + Cable, his work has appeared in Radio World, TV Technology, TV Fax, This Week in Consumer Electronics, Variety and the Encyclopedia Britannica.
