CNN has promoted Phil Mattingly to head its White House team as Chief White House Correspondent, effective immediately.
The newsroom vet steps up from his previous role of senior White House correspondent, where he covered the Biden administration.
His promotion is one of several White House team shakeups, as CNN also promoted MJ Lee to fill Mattingly’s senior correspondent post. Priscilla Alvarez is also joining the White House team as a reporter; she will continue covering immigration politics and policy, as well.
Arlette Saenz, Jasmine Wright, Jeremy Diamond, Kate Bennett and Kevin Liptak will continue to cover the White House.
