Stephanie Elam Joins CNN as Los Angeles based Correspondent
Stephanie Elam will join CNN as a correspondent based in Los Angeles, it was announced today by Terence Burke, vice president of newsgathering for CNN/U.S.
Elam returns to CNN from KNBC in Los Angeles where she served as a weekend evening anchor and general assignment reporter. During her tenure at KNBC, her reporting centered around emergency awareness, empowering Southern Californians with information to be earthquake ready, water safety and informed about money matters. She covered the release of John Smith, a man jailed 18 years for a crime he did not commit; the 2012 Golden Globes red carpet; and she anchored KNBC's breaking news coverage of the Seal Beach murders.
“Stephanie is an excellent communicator and tenacious reporter, and we are pleased to have her back as a part of the CNN family,” said Burke.
Before KNBC, Elam was a business news correspondent for CNN based in New York, where she also reported for HLN and CNN International. Elam covered a myriad of stories from the worst financial period in decades to the death of Michael Jackson during her time at CNN from 2003 to 2011.
