CNN Correspondent Jessica Yellin Out At Network: TV Newser

CNN correspondent Jessica Yellin is leaving the network.

TV Newser reported the news on Wednesday. Yellin was previously the network's chief White House correspondent until CNN shook up the beat in August. Yellin became chief domestic affairs correspondent in August and also served as a substitute anchor.

She joined CNN from ABC News in 2008, and was promoted to White House correspondent in 2008.

Yellin's exit is the latest change at CNN under Jeff Zucker. Zucker has overseen the departures and arrivals of numerous personalities — including Stephanie Cutter, Newt Gingrich, Van Jones and S.E. Cupp, who joined the network as the co-hosts of the new "Crossfire" in September — since taking over as president.

CORRECTION: Jake Tapper was not chief White House correspondent for CNN as was originally stated in the piece. He is the network's chief Washington correspondent.
