CNBC’s Erin Burnett is officially headed to CNN, where she will be an “anchor and chief business and economics correspondent,” according a press release from the network Friday.
In the release, CNN said, “Burnett will anchor a weekday general news program and will contribute to CNN’s coverage of national and international breaking news events and contribute reporting to CNN.com.”
Burnett, who began her journalism career at CNN (which she called “the world's preeminent news organization”), said in a statement that the move is “like coming home.”
She will begin her new job at CNN headquarters in New York this June. As yet, there's been no word as to what time slot she'll take over.
