“We are investing in the future of CBS News by continuing to strengthen our newsgathering and investigative reporting – much of which originates out of Washington,” said Neeraj Khemlani, president and co-head of CBS News. “We are putting together a strong team ahead of the midterms and presidential elections, who will bring a fresh multiplatform perspective to their respective areas and continue to make CBS News a destination for top political reporting and exclusive investigations.”

The new leadership team in Washington will help CBS "[hold] leaders accountable and [raise] the questions that go to the heart of the issues important to our viewers," said Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews, executive vice president of newsgathering for the outlet. 

Lorna Jones will stay in her role as deputy bureau chief in Washington, a job she has held since 2020 after serving as CBS's managing editor in Washington.
