Z. Byron Wolf serves as managing editor of CNN Digital Politics.
Z. Byron Wolf, who goes by Zach, serves as managing editor of CNN Digital Politics. Wolf joined CNN in July 2013 as a senior planning editor, and now plays a major role in CNN's innovative new era of political coverage. Wolf's keen eye for news, deep knowledge of video journalism in both the broadcast and digital spaces, and sophisticated understanding of the Washington bureau's news-gathering operation, contributes to his success.
Before coming to CNN, Wolf was senior political editor and deputy political director for ABC News. He also covered the Senate as a producer for the network, daily contributor to ABCNews.com and reporter for ABC News NOW. The change-over from Republican to Democratic control of Congress in 2006 and the health care reform debate in 2009 and 2010 are bookends for his time on Capitol Hill. In between, he covered every subject considered by the Senate.
On the trail, Wolf covered Ron Paul's presidential campaign for ABC in 2008 as a digital journalist -- one of the few reporters extensively covering what became a precursor to the Tea Party movement.
Wolf also worked as an assignment editor in ABC's Washington Bureau and as a freelance producer in California, where he is from and one day hopes to return. He graduated from UC Berkeley.
