CNN’s Kaitlan Collins elected 2024 president of White House Correspondents’ Association
Kaitlan Collins, CNN’s chief White House reporter, has been elected by her peers to serve as the president of the White House Correspondents’ Association in 2024.
Collins’s election marks a bit of history for the organization, which has now elected a woman as president three years in a row for the first time ever.
Collins was elected to a three-year term and she’ll serve as president in the final year of that term, along with NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell and NPR’s Tamara Keith.
“A huge thanks to my fellow members of the White House Correspondents’ Association for this vote of confidence,” Collins wrote in a tweet on Wednesday. “I am honored, humbled and ready to get to work!”
CNN hired Collins as a White House reporter in 2017 and named her its chief correspondent in 2021. She joined several of the nation’s largest news networks that currently have women serving as their chief White House correspondents.
