I’m thrilled to announce that Maeve Reston will be joining our fabulous and fast-growing CNN Politics Digital team. Many of you already know Maeve, a beautiful writer and CNN contributor who currently covers politics for the Los Angeles Times. She will remain in LA, where she will write big-picture political stories for us across the West and beyond. She’ll also report on the intersection of Hollywood, politics and money.

Maeve will contribute to both our television and digital video coverage of the 2016 presidential campaign.

She starts Nov. 24, and is hoping to join us in Washington that week.

Please join me in welcoming her to CNN.
