Aug 14 (Reuters) – Ingrid Cyprian-Matthews, an award-winning journalist and veteran news executive, has been named president after Neeraj Kemlani stepped down on Sunday, CBS News said on Monday.

The network hired insider Wendy McMahon as president and CEO of CBS News and Stations and CBS Media Ventures. He previously shared oversight of the divisions with Kemlani.

Cyprian-Matthews, who has been with CBS News for 30 years, joins the organization as a senior producer for morning news live segments. He most recently served as executive vice president for newsgathering.

He will now have greater editorial oversight for CBS News and oversee the network’s news content across all platforms, including broadcast, streaming, digital and radio.

Before joining CBS News in 1993, Cyprian-Matthews was the managing editor of CNN’s New York bureau. He began his career as a general assignment reporter for the National Public Radio Spanish-language news program „Enfolk Nacional.”

Some of the major news events he has covered in his career include the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo in the late 90s, the bombing of US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, and the devastating earthquakes in China, Haiti and Chile.
