HLN anchor Erica Hill is returning home, re-joining CNN full time. For nearly two years, she has been anchoring On The Story on HLN in addition to substitute anchoring on CNN.
Now, reports TVNewser, she has been promoted to CNN’s primary fill-in anchor and national correspondent.
“When it became clear that she fit in seamlessly to so many CNN programs, it made perfect sense to make that her permanent role,” wrote HLN chief Ken Jautz in a memo to staff.
On The Story will continue with a rotating cast of fill-in hosts.
