Wall Street Journal reporter Erica Orden has resigned to accept a position with CNN.
At CNN, she will be covering the special counsel investigation and other legal affairs matters.
Orden has previously covered white-collar crime for The Journal in New York, including securities-fraud and public-corruption cases, as well as the tumultuous exit of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara.
For nearly four years prior to that, she covered New York state politics, including Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s re-election bid; the trials of one-time legislative leaders Sheldon Silver and Dean Skelos and the resulting impact on Albany; and the federal corruption investigation of a former top Cuomo aide.
She has also worked in the paper’s Los Angeles bureau, where she covered the movie industry, and was a founding member of the Greater New York section.
Prior to joining The Journal in 2010, she wrote for New York Magazine.
Orden is a graduate of Barnard College and the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.
