ANN COMPTON, the longtime ABC NEWS WHITE HOUSE Correspondent who retired in 2014, will be back as a political contributor for ABC NEWS RADIO's coverage of the Republican convention in CLEVELAND and the Democratic convention in PHILADELPHIA.
In a memo to staff, ABC RADIO VP/GM STEVE JONES said, "ANN’s 41-years covering the White House and her enormous list of accomplishments are well documented. Few people have witnessed as much history first-hand as ANN COMPTON. Her blend of experience and wisdom gained from decades covering politics make ANN uniquely suited to put today’s political developments in perspective and to offer context that will best inform our listeners and distinguish our coverage in CLEVELAND and PHILADELPHIA."
COMPTON will appear on coverage anchored by AARON KATERSKY with political analysts STEVE ROBERTS and TREY HARDIN and reporters ALEX STONE, BRAD MIELKE, JIM RYAN, RYAN BURROW, MARK REMILLARD, and CHERI PRESTON. The network will also be hosting almost 30 affiliates broadcasting from its section of Media Row in CLEVELAND.
