Former ABC News star John Miller has joined CBS News as a senior correspondent.
Miller will have “a major role in the mornings” but will report across all CBS News platforms and broadcasts, including the occasional piece for “60 Minutes,” the network said. Naturally, he’s expected to enhance the division’s reporting on homeland-security issues and law enforcement in the United States and abroad.
Since 2005, Miller has served in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, ending his tour as deputy director of the Analysis Division. Miller has worked with the CIA, NSA and FBI.
Before joining the FBI, he served from 2003 to 2005 as head of the Counterterrorism and Criminal Intelligence Bureau and the Major Crimes Division of the Los Angeles Police Department, overseeing the LAPD’s Major Crimes Division, Hazardous Materials Unit and its Bomb Squad.
In 2002, he co-wrote “The Cell: Inside the 9/11 Plot, and Why the FBI and CIA Failed to Stop It.”
From 1995 to 2002, he worked at ABC News — in ’02 becoming co-anchor of “20/20.” Notably, in 1998, he secured an on-camera interview with Osama bin Laden.
He also served as New York City deputy police commissioner from 1994 to 1995.
