Report: Burnett to leave CNBC for CNN
New York Times
CNBC "rising star" Erin Burnett held talks with ABC and CBS before deciding to join CNN, reports Brian Stelter. (He profiled her in July 2008.) A CNBC anchor since 2005, Burnett is currently a co-anchor of “Squawk on the Street” on weekdays from 9 to 11 a.m. ET and the sole anchor of “Street Signs” from 2 to 4 p.m. In 2008, Vanity Fair noted that Burnett "has achieved, almost overnight, the level of visibility it took Maria Bartiromo years to achieve" and that "has everyone talking catfight." || Jon Friedman in 2009: Bartiromo or Burnett?
