CNN’s Hadas Gold has moved to New York and is now covering media.

She was CNN’s Jerusalem correspondent.

Gold reported extensively on the drastic internal political changes happening in Israel, from the unprecedented protest movement against the Israeli government’s judicial overhaul plan, to Benjamin Netanyahu’s historic corruption trial and loss of the premiership in 2021, as well as his comeback 18 months later. She has also covered Israel’s world-first COVID-19 vaccination campaign, historic visits by Israeli leaders to new partners like Bahrain, as well as President Joe Biden’s visit to Israel and the occupied Palestinian Territories in 2022.

Before moving to Jerusalem, Gold covered media, tech and politics for CNN from London and prior to that, Washington, D.C. where she was one of the lead reporters on the Trump administration’s historic lawsuit to prevent AT&T from acquiring CNN’s-then parent company Time Warner.

Prior to joining CNN, Gold spent more than five years at Politico as a media reporter, during which she was named one of the “most influential media reporters” by Mediaite in 2017. In 2011, while a graduate student she was awarded a fellowship with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting where she reported on trash pickers in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Gold graduated from the George Washington University with a B.A. in journalism and a M.A. in media and public affairs. She is a member of the National Council at the George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs.
