TV news correspondents, anchors and producers are booking their tickets for Rome, planning around the clock coverage of the election of the next Pope as the Cardinals gather for Conclave. This time, however, one of their own is on the Vatican side of things.
Greg Burke, who until last Summer was Fox News Channel’s Rome-based correspondent, is now working in the communications department of the Vatican. “You’re always going to have some news out of the Vatican,” Burke told TVNewser last year. He wasn’t kidding.
Burke made the TV news rounds this morning, calling in to talk to his old colleagues at “Fox & Friends,” as well as “‘CBS This Morning” and NBC’s “Today.” Expect to see and hear him quite a bit on U.S. TV over the next few months.
After the jump, a video interview TVNewser conducted with Burke, where he talks about his love of Italy and Rome.
