John King      

CNN Chief National Correspondent & Host of "Inside Politics"

John King is CNN's chief national correspondent, anchor of "Inside Politics," an hour long program featuring a panel of top-tier political correspondents, and an award-winning journalist who has covered presidential elections and reported from all 50 states.

He is a global and political speaker offering news-maker 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.

Joining CNN in 1997 and becoming chief national correspondent in 2005, King is a news veteran, in which he has covered eight presidential elections, the Iraq war, the September 11th attacks, the Clinton and Bush White Houses and Hurricane Katrina. Spanning the globe, King has reported from 70 states and has 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.

Before joining CNN, King was an Associated Press correspondent for 12 years. His AP duties included several major international events, including the Persian Gulf War, and serving as lead political correspondent for the 1992 and 1996 presidential elections.
