Reena Ninan has joined CBS News as a Correspondent based in New York City.  She will report for all CBS News broadcasts and anchor for CBSN, beginning next month.

Ninan comes to CBS News with a wealth of experience as a reporter, producer and anchor. Her journalism career has taken her around the globe, where she’s covered such major issues as the Arab Spring and the Palestinian efforts to gain statehood, and in the United States Ninan covered the White House and reported on the devastation from a tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma.

She joins CBS News after working as co-anchor of ABC News’ “World News Now” and “America This Morning.” Before that assignment, she covered the White House for ABC News, where she traveled with President Obama to Asia and with then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the Middle East.

Prior to ABC News, Ninan was a Middle East Correspondent for the Fox News Channel. In that position, Ninan reported from Egypt, India, Lebanon, Iraq, Libya and Israel. In 2011, she interviewed Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas before his push at the United Nations for Palestinian statehood. In 2011, she was named one of Glamour magazine’s “Women on the Front Lines.”
