CNN Commentary

CNN’s national political reporter Peter Hamby is leaving the network for a leadership position at Snapchat, TVNewser is reporting. In a memo to staff, DC bureau chief Sam Feist wrote: “Most of you know that Peter’s passion about politics and social media goes back to his first days at CNN.”

Although no longer a full-time reporter for the network, he will appear occasionally as an on-air and digital contributor through the 2016 election.

Feist added, “Please join us in congratulating Peter on his new adventure.”
