Erin Burnett to return to work soon, to interview Bill Clinton

Erin Burnett is evidently going to be returning from her maternity leave pretty soon. As reported this evening by the Washington Post’s Erik Wemple, CNN anchor Burnett will interview former President Bill Clinton and lead a panel discussion.

As noted on the Clinton Global Initiative website:

In 2005, President Bill Clinton’s goal was simple: convene the global community to move beyond just talking about the world’s most complex challenges to taking action. As CGI celebrates its 10th anniversary, the world looks very different today than it did a decade ago—while significant progress has been achieved, numerous challenges remain. Globally, 2015 marks a pivotal year to drive forward further advancements with the launch of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and the 20th anniversary of the Beijing World Conference on Women.

President Clinton will be joined by a panel of celebrities, business and government leaders, and philanthropists to discuss the remaining global challenges and the promising solutions that aim to achieve shared prosperity and opportunity over the next decade. The panel discussion and interview with President Clinton will be moderated by CNN anchor Erin Burnett and is scheduled for broadcast on CNN.

A similar arrangement occurred earlier this summer when CNN correspondent/anchor Poppy Harlow led a panel discussion in exchange for a Jake Tapper interview.

Fellow CNN host Fareed Zakaria will also moderate a separate panel, notes Wemple, on the Greek crisis, that will include Clinton and will also be aired on CNN.
