John King      

CNN Chief National Correspondent

With the sweep of his hand upon the massive interactive "magic wall," CNN chief national correspondent John King brought the 2008 election - the data, the delegates, and the details - to life in an astoundingly vivid way. Adding sizzle to CNN's coverage, he piloted the map into the lexicon of modern reporting and established himself as a journalist who brings an exciting new approach to the news.

Anchor of John King, USA, he is a global and political speaker offering newsmaker interviews, political analysis, national and world affair coverage, and commentary in a way that is "like having the Sunday newspaper on television." A reporter at heart, he likes going places, meeting people, and seeing things, taking viewers outside of Washington to tell the stories of everyday Americans.

A news veteran, King has covered six presidential elections, the Clinton and Bush White Houses, as well as the Asian tsunami and Hurricane Katrina. Spanning the globe, has also covered international events, including the first Persian Gulf War, the US military operation restoring the Aristide government to Haiti and the inauguration of Nelson Mandela as president of South Africa.

What King does best is deliver the news in ways that are different - connecting the biggest stories in Washington to the people and places throughout our nation while reaching out and touching them with his candid, conversational, interactive style.
