Jonathan Wald leaves CNN, returns to NBC

Don Lemon’s executive producer of CNN Tonight, Jonathan Wald, is returning to NBC News, where he previously served as a senior vice president of CNBC. He joined CNN to be the EP of Piers Morgan Tonight.

He will be the senior vice president of programming and development at MSNBC, reporting directly to MSNBC president Phil Griffin. He will work alongside fellow CNN alum Janelle Rodriguez.

In Griffin’s memo, obtained by TVNewser, he said, “In this new role, Jonathan will help us build on MSNBC’s success in primetime, develop new programming including long-form, and special events. He is joining MSNBC at a pivotal time.”

One of Wald’s memorable moves at CNN Tonight includes having Lemon interview a llama.
