NEW YORK (AP) - CNN has named Jessica Yellin as its new chief White House correspondent.

CNN Washington bureau chief Sam Feist (fyst) said Tuesday that Yellin’s “assertiveness along with her clever insight” has set her apart as a political reporter.

Yellin has served as national political correspondent for CNN since January 2009. She joined the network as a Capitol Hill correspondent in August 2007.

Prior to CNN, Yellin was a White House correspondent for ABC News, where she began in 2003. Before that, she was an overnight anchor and correspondent for MSNBC.

In her new position, she replaces Ed Henry, who recently jumped to Fox News Channel.
