Brian Stelter of The New York Times reports that Erin Burnett is jumping from CNBC to CNN.
Other than stating that Erin's deal with CNN will be "long-term," Stelter is short on details, raising questions about Erin's potential role on CNN. Will she be an anchor or a reporter? If she will be an anchor, what time slot will she fill? Will her reporting be limited to business news?
Like many other viewers, I've always considered Erin to be part of CNBC's brand. To see a story about her leaving the network with which she is so closely associated is shocking.
Erin Burnett has proven to be an extremely talented business news reporter on CNBC. She will undoubtedly be a great asset to CNN.
