CNN names Bryan Monroe editor of CNNPolitics.com

Award-winning journalist Bryan Monroe has joined CNN as editor of CNNPolitics.com, it was announced today by Meredith Artley, vice president and managing editor of CNN.com. In this newly created role, Monroe will lead the editorial planning and content strategy for CNN's online and mobile political coverage from the network’s DC Bureau.

“Bryan is an outstanding addition to the talented CNNPolitics.com team, and also to CNN’s DC bureau, including Sam Feist, Edith Chapin and their teams," said Artley. “His experience and leadership will expand and deepen our political reporting across CNN.com, The Political Ticker and all of our mobile products.”

Most recently, Monroe was a visiting professor at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, and is a former president of NABJ, the National Association of Black Journalists. Also, while at Knight-Ridder in 2005, he helped lead the team in Biloxi, MS, that won the 2006 Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal for their coverage of Hurricane Katrina.

"I am thrilled to be joining CNN and the nation’s ‘best political team,’ particularly at a time when political coverage is at the front and center of the national conversation," said Monroe. "Helping extend those conversations across the Web and mobile devices is an exciting challenge."

Prior to his professorship at Northwestern, Monroe served as Vice President and Editorial Director at Ebony and Jet magazines in Chicago. At the magazines, he led the coverage of the 2008 presidential elections and conducted the first interview with then President-elect Barack Obama following his November victory; and also had the last major interview with pop star Michael Jackson before his death in 2007.
