NEW YORK — John Miller, who has held senior positions in law enforcement and journalism, is joining CNN as chief law enforcement and intelligence analyst, the network announced Tuesday.

Miller has worked for both ABC News and CBS News during his career. He also worked at the FBI and most recently was the Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism for the New York Police Department.

As a journalist, he covered the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, and before that, while working for ABC News, he conducted an interview with Osama bin Laden. He is co-author of the book “The Cell: Inside the 9/11 Plot”.

“John will help deliver on CNN’s commitment to solving complex issues while presenting audiences with independent, objective information and meaningful analysis across all platforms,” said Chris Licht, CEO and President of CNN Worldwide.

Miller began working Tuesday at the network’s New York office.

Since taking office earlier this year, Licht has tried to steer CNN in the direction of offering more news and less opinion. He’s garnered more attention lately for starts under his watch, such as former “Reliable Sources” host Brian Stelter. Last Friday, CNN White House correspondent John Harwood announced he was leaving.

Harwood had worked at The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal as well as NBC News.
