CNN has announced the appointment of Anna Coren to the network’s Asia Pacific regional headquarters in Hong Kong.
Coren takes up her post following more than ten years at broadcasters in Australia where she held a variety of positions, most recently as a presenter on The Seven Network’s ‘Today Tonight’ national current affairs program. In 2006 she served as the network’s bureau chief in Los Angeles from where she covered stories including the conflict between Israel and Hezbollah. Prior to joining The Seven Network, she spent four years as a reporter and presenter for The Nine Network based in Sydney.
“Anna has played an integral role in coverage of some of the most significant global news stories in recent years,” said Katherine Green, Senior Vice President Programming for CNN International. “We’re delighted to add a journalist of her experience, depth and passion to our Hong Kong news centre and we look forward to her working as part of our award-winning team”, she added.
In her career to date, Coren has covered a broad portfolio of major international news stories including the terrorist attacks in Bali and London, the Tsunami and several Australian elections. Coren received her Bachelor of Arts in communications from Sydney’s Charles Sturt University.
