CNN has named Rosa Flores as correspondent it was announced today by Terence Burke, Vice President of Newsgathering for CNN/U.S.  She will start in July and will be based in New York City.  
Said Burke, “Rosa is an outstanding reporter who made her mark in local television covering numerous breaking news and enterprise stories.  We are thrilled to have her join the CNN team.”  
In addition to her role as correspondent Flores will serve as substitute anchor.
Throughout her career Flores covered a variety of national, state and local stories.  Before joining CNN, she anchored the late afternoon newscast at WBRZ, the ABC affiliate in Baton Rouge. Before moving to Louisiana’s capital city, Flores covered enterprise and breaking news stories at WDSU-TV, the NBC affiliate in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Her reporting included extensive coverage of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Prior to that, she reported for KHOU-TV, the CBS affiliate in Houston and KWTV in Oklahoma City.  
“To be able to report for the premiere newsgathering operation in the world has been a dream ever since I covered my first story. I am honored and excited to be joining CNN and work with the best in our profession. I look forward to being able to tell stories on a national level. I can’t wait to get started,” said Flores.
Flores is the author of “Progreso,” a history book about her hometown on the Texas-Mexico border.  In 2012, RTDNA awarded her the Michele Clark Fellowship in memory of the CBS News correspondent who died tragically in a plane crash while on assignment.  Flores was also selected to participate in the Peter Jennings Project for Journalists and the Constitution and in the Metcalf Institute for Marine and Environmental reporting oil spill seminars.  
Flores is an active member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists (NAHJ). She also helped found the organization’s Oklahoma City chapter.
Flores is dedicated to community service work, making dozens of appearances at schools and before professional groups.  She created a motivational series of talks for teenage girls and is currently writing a children’s book.    
She earned a Bachelor’s degree in broadcast journalism and another Bachelor’s in business administration and a Master’s in accounting at the University of Texas at Austin.

Have you all noticed that for the last couple of
days that CNN has added a red bug to
the line with the time and stocks ? The crawl is
not changing when the bug is on the
screen. Please get rid of the junk on the screen.

Hope that she is a good reporter who is interested in facts and real reporting. Also, taking a had look at their media colleagues. Yet again the media has wrongly reported the NSA supposedly spying on
Americans. It surprises me that no one is being a
skeptic to Glenn Greenwald and Edward Snowden.
They are saying stuff that may or may not be true.
From the start CNN said the government is listening
to our phone calls. This is not true. This guy was only
around for 3 months. The is no way in the world in
that short period of time he could understand the
full operation. Both Greenwald and Snowden have
agendas and CNN is blind to that. Call me cynical but something is just not adding up here. CNN and
the rest of the media are being played. Since the NSA and CIA can't comment CNN don;t act like everything from Greenwald and Snowden are true.

@1:17, I totally agree. Too much distracting junk on screen. I want to listen and watch CNN, not multi-task by listening, watching, and reading paragraphs. Hopefully beginning Monday (first day of New Day), CNN will debut new screen graphics. At this point, they might as well get rid of the LIVE bug. It is never disappearing when necessary. It just stays on screen.

Keep the crawl. White background with black letters. Get rid of the stock/time/ bug as mentioned.

Have a white CNN logo in a red rectangle. No LIVE bug. Next to it, have the description background silver like CNN International, getting rid of the colorful ones that change for each show.

Whatever is being talked about, keep the headline short and simple. Don't write paragraphs and keep all words capitalized. It's hard to read lower-cased sometimes.

I also find it pointless to have the animated show logo segment box. Keep it simple and clean.

Have "LIVE" appear on top of the screen briefly after a commercial break, just like what ABC news does.
