Wabash’s own Dean Reynolds is making the move from ABC to CBS.
Here’s an excerpt from the press release from Sean McManus:
"I’m pleased to tell you that Dean Reynolds, an award-winning reporter who has covered major stories from datelines around the world, has been named a CBS News correspondent. Dean will join Cynthia Bowers in the Chicago bureau, giving us a remarkably strong correspondent team in the Midwest.
Any time you can acquire the talents of a reporter like Dean Reynolds, you jump at the opportunity. He has done extraordinary work on every kind of story imaginable, from the biggest domestic stories of the past decade to politics to international hostage crises and the Gulf War. He will make CBS News even stronger.
Dean has been a correspondent for ABC News for the past 23 years, reporting primarily for “World News” as well as other network broadcasts and platforms. In addition to major domestic stories, including President Gerald Ford’s funeral, he covered many presidential campaigns, most recently that of Sen. John Kerry in 2004 while based in Chicago (1998-present). Dean also covered the campaign of Gov. George W. Bush in 2000.
Dean is the recipient of three Emmy Awards, as well as the White House Correspondents’ Association’s Merriman Smith Award for excellence in presidential news coverage for his reporting on the shooting of President Ronald Reagan.
Dean was born in East Chicago, Ind. He was graduated from Wabash College in 1970 with a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts. He lives with his wife and four children in the Chicago area. He is the son of Frank Reynolds, the late ABC News anchor."
