The Ticker: ‘Escape Fire,’ ‘Eye Opening Women,’ Burnett


By Alex Weprin Comment

  • CNN has acquired another film to air under the CNN Films banner. The film, Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare, was a big hit at the Sundance Film Festival. It will air on CNN Sunday, March 10 and reveals the flaws in America’s healthcare system.

  • Next week “CBS This Morning” will dedicate the show to “Eye-Opening Women,” and will feature interviews with prominent women from different fields. Among the confirmed guests are former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, Condoleeza Rice and Angie’s List founder Angie Hicks, with more to come.

  • The NY Post reports that the issue stopping Erin Burnett from going to the mornings is, of course, money. Her contract guarantees an evening slot, so she would have to change it to make the move.
