CNNMoney names biz/tech correspondent in London
Ed O’Keefe, senior vice president of premium content at CNN, sent out the following announcement on Monday:
Jason Farkas and I are thrilled to announce that Samuel Burke has joined the CNNMoney team as a Business and Technology Correspondent based in London.
In this cross platform role, Samuel will report on day-of breaking tech news for TV and continue to make sharp and engaging digital video ahead of the full-scale launch of our Tech business led by Aimee Rawlins and Erica Fink.
Samuel will expand our coverage of tech and innovation internationally, share content across CNN, CNNi, HLN, CNNMoney, and the premium businesses including Style, Media + Entertainment, Arabic, Travel, and Health.
He will report on the regulatory issues U.S. firms like Apple, Facebook and Google face around the globe, and as has become tradition, we will continue to dunk Samuel into pools, rivers, lakes and oceans to stress test the latest phones, drones, apps and wearables.
And if that wasn’t enough, he will keep translating it all into Spanish for our friends at CNNe.
Samuel starts in London today.
Join us in congratulating him on this exciting new role, and please form a line outside Jason’s office to state your case for Samuel’s vacated seat on the 5th floor in NYC.
