CNN International Correspondent Matt Rivers moves to ABC News as Mexico City-based correspondent.

Rivers has been based in Mexico City for CNN for three years, so he won’t be going too far.

“Throughout his tenure at CNN, he has covered a variety of important stories, including the Covid-19 pandemic in Mexico and Brazil, the immigration debate at the US-Mexico border and the war in Ukraine,” the ABC News president said. Kim Godvin said in a statement. Previously, Matt reported from CNN’s Beijing bureau, covering key stories impacting Asia-Pacific, including the US-China trade war, Hong Kong protests, legalization of same-sex marriage in Taiwan and the relationship between the Trump administration and China, and has been on the front lines of numerous news reports, including the Sulawesi earthquake and the Indonesia tsunami.

Rivers joined CNN in 2015 as a Beijing-based correspondent after several stints in local news: CBS 3 in Philadelphia; KSAT-TV in San Antonio; and KTSM-TV in El Paso. He is the recipient of a Royal Television Society (RTS) award and several Emmy Award nominations.
