CBS Newsman Miller to Join New NYPD Chief

Veteran newsman John Miller is planning to quit CBS News to rejoin New York's new police commissioner Bill Bratton, according to the New York Post.

Miller, who produced and reported the "60 Minutes" investigation into the National Security Agency on Sunday night, has worked under his old friend Bratton twice before.

He became Bratton’s deputy commissioner for public information when Bratton was New York's police chief for two years until resigning in 1996 after a falling-out with former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani.

Miller then headed the Los Angeles Police Department's counterterrorism and criminal intelligence units when Bratton became that department's police commissioner.

For the past two-years, Miller has been a senior correspondent and the primary reporter on national security issues, as well as on crime stories, for "CBS This Morning" and on the "CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley."

Last week New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio named the 66-year-old Bratton, who has also been Boston's police commissioner, as the city’s next police chief.

During his tenure in L.A., Miller created the Automated Critical Asset Management System, a terror-target risk-assessment program now employed by several states. He also enrolled in the L.A. police academy and was sworn in by his buddy Bratton after seven months.

“It was the proudest day of his life,” Bratton recently told Men’s Journal.

Starting in 2005, Miller worked for six years with the FBI and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. In 2011, he returned to broadcast journalism with CBS.

According to the Post, Miller is expected to take over a top intelligence position or counterterrorism role with Bratton, who will assume his duties as police chief in January.
