WSJ’s Hodge moving to CNN
Nathan Hodge is joining CNN from The Wall Street Journal to take on the role of Moscow bureau chief.
Hodge has been The Journal’s Moscow bureau chief from 2015 to date, leading the WSJ’s coverage of the Ukraine crisis, Russia’s intervention in Syria, and the ongoing confrontation between Washington and Moscow.
Before moving to Moscow, he covered national security and military affairs for over a decade. He was the WSJ’s Kabul bureau chief, covering Afghanistan and Pakistan, and has reported from Iraq, Iran, Syria and many other places in the Middle East.
“The fact that CNN is doubling down on its commitment to Russia was a big factor in me taking on this role,” said Hodge in a statement.
Hodge has worked for Jane’s Defense Weekly, the Financial Times, Slate and the Economist Intelligence Unit. He has a masters degree from Yale University in Russian and east European studies and graduated from Rutgers University in 1992 with a B.A. in English and political science.
