Nikki Battiste Named CBS News Correspondent

CBS News Moves ‘To Own’ Clergy Abuse Story

CBS News correspondent Nikki Battiste has over the last several months reported out a group of harrowing stories for CBS Evening News about a problem that has affected millions and is only now coming to greater light. Since last summer she kept tabs on legal probes into the behavior of Catholic clergy, and resulting investigations. When CBS News executives became aware of the reporter’s line on the story, they worked to broaden its exposure.
