CBC's Vancouver reporter Chris Brown has been named the network's Moscow correspondent as the network establishes a permanent bureau in the Russian capital. He will be joined by field producer Corinne Seminoff and shooter/editor Pascal Dumont.
The CBC's Jennifer McGuire said Brown will go to Moscow after the upcoming B.C. election. The CBC has covered Russia on an off-and-on basis with a so-called "pocket bureau" last headed by Susan Ormiston.
