WCNC Vet Joins CNN Newsource

Dianne Gallagher has joined the CNN Newsource affiliate news service as a national correspondent, based in Washington D.C.

She joins CNN from WCNC Charlotte, N.C., where she had been a reporter and weekend anchor.

CNN Newsource provides "24-hour digital content distribution, seven live channels, live coverage of breaking news from CNN correspondents and localized live reports on key topics such as politics, money and entertainment."

It has both domestic and international operations, the latter of which should be a good fit with Gallagher, who CNN says is fluent in Arabic, Italian, German and Portuguese.

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.
