Bianna Golodryga joining CNN as senior global affairs analyst

Bianna Golodryga is joining CNN as a full-time senior global affairs analyst, according to the network.

Golodryga, who was last with CBS News until April, and also worked for Yahoo News and ABC News prior to that, will also serve as a fill-in anchor on CNN.


"Some professional news: given the renewed focus on news abroad, I'm thrilled to be full time at the place I've always felt at home," Golodryga wrote on Twitter.

The Moldovan immigrant came to the U.S. as a child and began her broadcast journalism career in 2001 as a producer at CNBC.

Golodryga is married to Peter Orszag, the former budget director under President Obama. 

She will be based at CNN's new New York bureau in Hudson Yards on the west side of Manhattan.
