Zucker won’t let Dana Bash out of CNN contract to take over CBS’ Face the Nation (report)

With John Dickerson leaving CBS News’ Face the Nation to co-host CBS This Morning, it left an open gap for the Sunday program.

Apparently, CNN’s marquee political correspondent and State of the Union primary substitute anchor Dana Bash wanted the CBS gig. But Zucker would not let her out of her contract, reports PageSix.

A PageSix source says that, “Dana went to Jeff” to ask for the CBS gig to replace host John Dickerson.

But Zucker wouldn’t go for the move.

It isn’t clear how much longer she has on her CNN contract, but she did renew in 2015 with the network.

  1. DO NOT!!!! let Dana Bash leave please. We need her input all the time. I spend at least (4) four hours a day on CNN and Dana Bash is a big part of the network. Thanks

  2. I guess it’s possible Dana saw herself in that CBS role.

    But did CBS?

    Sorry folks, but this speculation defies imagination.

    If I were Page Six, I would double check their sources.

    Dana is a nice low-key contributor…but she has no personality and is as bland and uninsiring as anyone at CNN — with the possible exception of her ex-husband John King.

    Check her ratings when she sub-hosts for Jake Tapper…not good.

    Page Six has a penchant for taking shots at NBC and CNN. Let’s not lose sight of that.
