CNN has named Edith Chapin its New York bureau chief, the network announced Tuesday.

Chapin was previously CNN’s Midwest regional bureau chief, overseeing the network’s newsgathering operations in Chicago, Dallas and Denver.

In her new role, Chapin will coordinate CNN coverage of New York City and the northeastern U.S.
