David Gregory won’t be joining CNN

The talks between CNN and David Gregory are over, it seems. Why isn’t he at CNN?

Money.

PageSix has all the juicy details:

“Jeff was really considering hiring David,” a source familiar with the talks told us. “But they could not come up with a number to get him there.”

The source added that staff cuts of around 10 percent at CNN and its parent, Turner Broadcasting, made the deal impossible. “They were meeting around the time of the crazy layoffs at CNN, and it would have looked really bad giving out a huge contract while people were being laid off.”
