CNN Erin Burnett Ads Pop Up on Burnett’s Former Home: CNBC

By Chris Ariens 

Just days ahead of her debut on CNN, “Erin Burnett OutFront” ads are appearing on Burnett’s old network — CNBC, during the show she used to host “Squawk on the Street.” TVNewser spotted this commercial about 10 minutes ago. As we’ve reported in the past, it’s not uncommon for one cable network to pay for time on a competing network during local ad spots on a cable carrier — in this case Time Warner cable in New York City.

> More: From a Tipster: They’ve also been airing in heavy rotation on Fox News Channel via Time Warner Cable in NYC. Most notably, during her direct 7pm competitor, Shepard Smith’s 3pm newscast and “The O’Reilly Factor” among other time slots.
