John Miller Exiting CBS News to Return to NYPD
The senior correspondent will rejoin incoming commissioner William Bratton, with whom he previously worked as part of the New York and Los Angeles police departments.
CBS News senior correspondent John Miller is exiting his role at the network to rejoin the New York Police Department, he told WCBS New York.
Miller, who has been with CBS News for two years, previously served as deputy police commissioner from 1994-95 under then-commissioner William Bratton. Miller will rejoin Bratton, who will return as commissioner under Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, who will be sworn in Jan. 1.
It's unclear what Miller's new role will be.
At CBS News, Miller has reported on such stories including the Times Square bomb plot, the Boston Marathon bombings and the Newtown school shooting.
"John Miller is a remarkable journalist with deep insight into law enforcement," CBS News said in a statement. "He has been invaluable to the CBS News family. We wish him well in his quest to help make the city of New York a safer place as part of the NYPD. John will always have a home at CBS News."
Before joining CBS News in 2011, Miller served in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and was head of the Counter-Terrorism and Criminal Intelligence Bureau and the Major Crimes Division of the Los Angeles Police Department, also under then-chief Bratton.
From 1995-2002, he was a correspondent for ABC News, for which he landed an on-camera interview with Osama bin Laden, and in 2002 became co-anchor of 20/20.
Throughout his career, he also has reported on the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and other national security matters. He has won nine Emmy Awards, two Peabody Awards, and an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia Award.
