Jo Ling Kent has been named senior business and technology correspondent for CBS News.

Kent will report for all CBS News programs and platforms starting later this summer, where she’ll add to the division’s existing reporting on global economics, including everything from personal finance and consumer trends to the Federal Reserve and the World Bank.

“I’m excited and honored to join the legendary team of journalists at CBS News,” said Kent in a statement. “With the world changing faster than ever, there’s no better place than CBS News for original reporting and compelling storytelling on the most transformative tech, business and economic issues of our time.”

Kent joins CBS News after six years as the business and tech correspondent for all NBC News and MSNBC platforms, where her reporting earned an Edward R. Murrow Award and three Emmy nominations.

From 2013 to 2016, Kent covered major tech companies and startups as a correspondent and podcast host for the Fox Business Network.

Earlier, she was an investigative and general assignment reporter at NBC Connecticut, where she was part of the news team that earned a Peabody for coverage of the Sandy Hook school shooting. She also covered the 2012 presidential race as a campaign embed reporter for NBC News.
