Former Politico White House reporter Eamon Javers is heading for the small screen, joining CNBC as a Washington reporter covering lobbying and regulatory affairs, where he will appear on the cable network’s Business Day programming and on CNBC.com.
Javers had served as a Washington correspondent for BusinessWeek prior to Politico and, before that, he was an on-air correspondent for none other than CNBC.
CNBC Business Day managing editor Nikhil Deogun said:
What happens in the nation’s capital is rapidly determining the future of our financial system, and with Eamon on board, CNBC is perfectly positioned to pierce the nexus of Washington and Wall Street. He is one of the most well-respected Washington reporters. We are excited that he will be bringing his smart, quick, and in-depth insight to our viewers and readers.
And Javers added:
I’m thrilled to be joining the terrific team at CNBC. Almost every day brings a fresh reminder of how much decisions made in Washington affect Wall Street and the economy, and I’m eager to get started helping to uncover and explain those decisions for CNBC’s viewers.
