Mary Ann Fox, CNN regional newsgathering director, sent out the following announcement on Tuesday:
Hi everyone –
I’m happy to announce that Alison Kosik will be joining the NY Bureau as a general assignment correspondent.
Alison is no stranger to the newsroom, as she has worked with us during many snowstorms, hurricanes and manhunts.
She brings with her an in-depth knowledge of business news from her years reporting for CNN Money.
I’m thrilled she is joining the newsgathering team. She officially starts with us tomorrow.
Please join me in welcoming her to the newsroom.
In addition to reporting live daily from the New York Stock Exchange in New York, Kosik provided business and financial reporting for CNN networks and platforms, including CNNMoney.com.
Kosik began working for CNN in 2008. She covered the financial sector during the 2007 recession, the downfall of Lehman Brothers. She reported on the wave of home foreclosures, the flash crash of 2010 and President Obama’s 2009 Stimulus plan. She also reported breaking news for CNN and CNN Newsource and covered stories including the mass killing spree at a Connecticut factory in 2010.
Before joining CNN, Kosik worked as an investigative reporter at WCBS-TV in New York for their Specials Unit. Prior to joining WCBS, Kosik worked as a reporter/anchor for the Sinclair Broadcast Group in Washington and a reporter for Hearst-Argyle Television in Washington.
She was a business correspondent for EnergyNewsLive.com in Washington covering the energy sector, energy policy and the politics of the energy sector from Capitol Hill.
