Last week, CNN’s weekday New York-based programming of Early Start, all editions of CNN Newsroom and At This Hour made the move to CNN’s new headquarters at 30 Hudson Yards. This week, Erin Burnett OutFront and CNN Tonight with Don Lemon made the move to the new office. Both programs will broadcast out of the same set, called Studio 19Z.
New Day, Quest Means Business, AC360 and Cuomo Primetime are expected to shed their offices at Columbus Circle and make the jump to their new studio at Hudson Yards beginning next week, completing the move.
Jake Tapper, the man who pulls double-duty for CNN, hosting The Lead at 4:00pm-5:00pm Monday through Friday, and anchors the Sunday political affairs program State of the Union, is adding a new show to his plate through Election Day — Erin Burnett OutFront.
Tapper will sub for Burnett while she is on maternity leave, like he has during a past maternity leave in 2013.
Prior to this, anchors Kate Bolduan and Jim Sciutto had filled in for her.
CNN anchor Erin Burnett has given birth to her third child, a son, named Owen Thomas Burnett Rubulotta.
According to People magazine, the OutFront anchor and husband David Rubulotta became the proud parents of the baby who arrived on Monday, August 20, at 9:01 a.m. Owen measured 20½ inches and weighed 7 lbs., 15 oz. He joins the couple’s daughter Colby Isabelle, 3, and son Nyle Thomas, 4½.
“We are all in awe of our baby boy — who is already bringing joy (despite a lot less sleep) to our home,” Burnett and Rubulotta tell the magazine.
Burnett began her maternity leave after last week.
CNN’s OutFront anchor Erin Burnett, 41, is pregnant with her third child with husband David Rubulotta, her representative confirmed to PEOPLE Magazine.
“We are so excited for number three. As one of three myself, I think it’s a lucky number!” Burnett tells PEOPLE.
The couple — who wed in December 2012 — is already parents to son Nyle, 4, and daughter Colby, 2½.
She admits to thinking about “what kind of world my children will live in, and how I want it to be a place they want to explore and make their own,” Burnett continued.
Back in December, she refused to let another anchor cover her show when she suffered from an eye injury — needless to say, another CNN anchor will be hosting OutFront for considerable time in the coming months.
As CNN Tonight anchor Don Lemon continues his leave following the accidental drowning of his older sister, tonight, OutFront anchor Erin Burnett sat in for him on Monday.
On Thursday and Friday, anchors Anderson Cooper and Jake Tapper filled in for Lemon.
But with CNN tapping Burnett to fill in on CNN Tonight on Monday, I must say, who better to fill in for him — other than perhaps chief business correspondent and Early Start anchor Christine Romans — than Burnett? Burnett, when hired by the network, was given the title chief business and economics correspondent, and came from CNBC, where she covered biz news.
With the Dow “plunging” 1,175 points, the worst decline in history, who better to sit in the chair than her?
CNN’s Erin Burnett suffered an odd eye issue before her Monday broadcast (pictured above), but insisted on anchoring her show anyways.
On Twitter, Burnett said, “I have a bad cold and literally minutes before the show my eye obviously was affected. Sorry all!”
But a RadarOnline source insists: “She refuses to let anyone cover her show because she is afraid to let any other anchors be in her time slot.”
She was off the air Tuesday, with Jim Sciutto filling in for her.
On the same day, both Erin Burnett and Erica Hill, of CNN and HLN, respectively, wore the same yellow dress.
The OutFront and On the Story anchors are both based out of the network’s New York bureau.
Hill remarked on it as well, saying, “great minds!”
President-elect Donald Trump met with TV news executives and anchors today from CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC/MSNBC, and Fox News — and the New York Post reported on how Trump blasted CNN.
“Trump started with Jeff Zucker and said I hate your network, everyone at CNN is a liar and you should be ashamed,” the Post source gossiped.
“Trump kept saying, ‘We’re in a room of liars, the deceitful dishonest media who got it all wrong. He addressed everyone in the room calling the media dishonest, deceitful liars. He called out Jeff Zucker by name and said everyone at CNN was a liar, and CNN was network of liars.'”
CNN’s Zucker, Erin Burnett and Wolf Blitzer were in attendance.
