CNN rebounded nicely from Monday’s devastating news that it had lost hunky weatherman Rob Marciano to “Entertainment Tonight,” announcing Tuesday that it has hired Sara Ganim as a correspondent based in Atlanta.

Ganim, who joins CNN from the Patriot News in Harrisburg, Pa., broke the story of the grand jury investigation into Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State University football defensive coordinator who was found guilty of child sex abuse.

The Sandusky case enveloped the university, including its late football coach Joe Paterno, and Sandusky’s Second Mile Charity in scandal.

Ganim won a Pulitzer Prize for her reporting.

And you’ve already seen her on CNN and HLN as on-air contributor during those networks’ coverage of Sandusky’s trial and conviction.
