Costa swaps the Washington Post for CBS News
Robert Costa, national political reporter at The Washington Post, is leaving to join CBS News as chief election and campaign correspondent. He will be focusing on the 2022 mid-terms, the 2024 election, and American democracy.
He is expected to appear on news programs across the network’s broadcast and streaming platforms.
Prior to joining the Post in 2014, Costa was at the National Review magazine. He also served as the moderator of “Washington Week” on PBS from 2017 to 2020. He was also a regular presence on MSNBC and NBC News programs, where he was a political analyst.
“I’ve worked across platforms for much of my career, and I believe it’s a vital time for me to grow as a storyteller, and to build my muscle as a reporter on the television front,” Costa said. “That excites me as a new challenge.”
