CNNRadio adds to editorial strength

MUMBAI: CNNRadio in the US has announced that it has strengthened its newsgathering operations. It has appointed four new staff members together and has also promoted four experienced staffers to new positions. CNNRadio is a full-service network, providing its more than 2,000 worldwide affiliates with up-to-date news, business, sports, health, and entertainment news.




In announcing the changes CNN News Services VP Jerry DeMink said that the changes ensure that news from CNNRadio remains the most up-to-date and accurate information available for its more than 2,000 affiliates. “Our new hires come to CNNRadio with unsurpassed skills in the field of radio newsgathering,” DeMink said. “Additionally, the establishment of the CNNRadio supervising producers will give our partner stations an experienced and specific contact point regarding coverage plans for upcoming events of interest while overseeing the day-to-day editorial direction of the network.”

The network has hired former staff member Tyler Moody as senior producer. Moody rejoins the network from KOA-AM in Denver where he was the executive producer and assistant news director. Moody previously worked for CNNRadio in 2000-2001 as a coordinating producer, anchor and editor. His new job duties will include oversight of CNNRadio correspondents as well as leading the team coordinating news content and live shots for affiliates.

In addition to the new hires, CNNRadio has established a management level of supervising producers to oversee the editorial direction of the network. Radio veteran Richard Benson has been promoted to executive producer. He has been with CNNRadio since 1989.
