On his morning editorial call, CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker announced that Michael Bass is joining the network later this week. Bass joins from the syndicated “Katie” where he was co-EP.

At CNN, he will take on a senior editorial role, which, we’re told, will include overseeing CNN’s vast network of on-air contributors as well as other other day-to-day duties.

Bass was a longtime Zucker lieutenant at “Today.” He left NBC in 2001 to take over as EP of CBS’s “The Early Show.” He returned to NBC in 2007 in a business development role and joined Katie Couric’s syndicated show last summer.
