Big Name Ditches ABC News For Rival Network

( According to a statement released on Thursday, Cecilia Vega, who most recently served as the chief White House correspondent for ABC News, will be moving on to work for CBS News.

Vega, who has worked for ABC News for the past 12 years, will soon begin working for CBS as a correspondent for the program 60 Minutes.

Executive producer Bill Owens said Cecilia Vega is an extraordinary journalist and storyteller. He said he’s been a massive fan of her work for a long time, and “I couldn’t be more thrilled that she will be joining us here at 60 Minutes.”

He said her new coworkers couldn’t be more in agreement with what he said, that they are all fans of hers.

Vega remarked that “this is a dream come true,” while referring to the situation. “It is an incredible pleasure for me to be joining the ranks of this illustrious show and working alongside some of the best reporters in the media industry.”

After working as a reporter for ABC affiliate KGO-TV in San Francisco, Vega joined ABC News in 2011 as a correspondent located in Los Angeles. Vega’s first job out of college was as a reporter for a print publication.

Vega has extensive expertise in the broadcast industry, having anchored multiple broadcasts such as “Good Morning America” and the Saturday edition of “World News Tonight.”

She reported on a variety of topics, including the White House under both Trump and Biden, the COVID-19 epidemic, and the upcoming election for president in 2020.

According to tradition, the journalist would ramp up gradually on “60 Minutes,” according to Owens. In contrast to daily breaking news responsibilities, he claimed that establishing the rhythms of enterprise journalism “takes a minute.” However, he expects that Vega will be able to contribute to at least one story during the current season of the news magazine and then continue to report for other stories this summer.
