As Michaela Pereira signed off from the KTLA anchor desk Friday, her soon-to-be colleague Chris Cuomo appeared on the newscast to welcome her to CNN (video after the jump).
Pereira will be the news anchor for “New Day,” the CNN morning newscast anchored by Cuomo that will launch next month. Joking that CNN “really needs her,” Cuomo welcomed Pereira and praised the veteran KTLA morning team.
“I will say this, as one broadcaster to others: you guys really make some magic in the morning,” Cuomo said. “I’ve loved watching you for so many years, every time I’m in LA, no matter who I’m working for. I love it. You guys are a beautiful TV family there.”
