CNN Names Jones Washington General Correspondent

CNN has named Athena Jones a general assignment
correspondent in Washington, effective immediately.

Jones had been a producer with NBC in Washington, where
she worked on segments for MSNBC as well as NBC News.

"Athena will be an outstanding addition to our political
team," said Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist. "Her experience covering the
White House, politics and international affairs are a perfect fit for the
Washington bureau."

It will be a homecoming for Jones, who was a freelance
producer for CNN before joining NBC.

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.
