Veteran news reporter David Brody is joining The Daily Signal as a contributor to cover the 2016 presidential election.

Brody, who will remain chief political correspondent for CBN News, is an Emmy Award-winning journalist known for his high-profile interviews with political leaders such as Barack Obama, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Sarah Palin, Newt Gingrich, Hillary Clinton, Mitt Romney, Donald Trump and Harry Reid.

He’s the latest addition to The Daily Signal’s growing news team, which recently added a foreign correspondent and chief White House correspondent.

“We have assembled a top-notch news team that combines well-regarded veterans and some of the best new journalistic talent in Washington,” said Daily Signal Publisher Geoff Lysaught. “The addition of David as a contributor demonstrates The Daily Signal’s continued commitment to covering the most important political news at the highest standards of journalistic integrity.”

Brody joined CBN News in 2003. He regularly breaks news on “The Brody File,” a weekly 30-minute show and blog on issues relating to faith and politics.
