Get Out Your Resumes: CNN Looking For On-Air Talent!

According to my homies at Mediaite:

In Brian Stelter’s New York Times write-up about the Sanchez show, he hints at something that hasn’t been previously reported:

Several CNN employees have said in recent weeks that they expect other changes to the network’s programming, given its ratings woes. CNN executives have put feelers out to talent agents recently in an apparent effort to scope out new hosts, but none have been hired.

Although none have been hired, the idea that the network is out there looking to hire new talent is notable, if not surprising. There are already a few late afternoon/pre-prime time changes on the way – Sanchez will host Rick’s List from 3-5pmET, with The Situation Room now airing from 5-7pmET. Then John King will anchor his yet-unnamed show at 7pmET.

But what else? Unlike MSNBC, which is making changes in the new year during daytime hours, CNN’s ratings troubles are more in prime time and less during the day. Adding a daytime host – let’s say to host a 2pmET show to lead into Sanchez’, doesn’t hit the area CNN most needs to improve.

More after the jump.

Google Stalking Hill Harper: Ludacris Gives Out Awards?

Hill Harper is supposed to attend the sixth (!) annual Ludacris Foundation Benefit Dinner where Ludacris (!) will be honoring Rep. Maxine Waters (great), Quincy Jones (awesome) and BET CEO Debra Lee (um ... no comment).

One. I had no clue Luda gave out awards. How nice.

Two. Debra Lee? Really? On the press release it said the awards were for those with, "a rich history of giving back and who demonstrate a strong commitment to community service." Is "Tiny and Toya" a "commitment to community service?" Or the Mo'Nique Show? Or Wendy Williams?

Three. Hill Harper is going to be there! All's forgiven!


Google Stalking TJ Holmes: It's A March Wedding!

And I'm not the bride, but that's beside the point.

From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Aww. That was the sound of the InterContinental becoming the Heartbreak Hotel. CNN anchor T.J. Holmes, emceeing the YWCA’s “Open Your Purse” fundraiser on Oct. 1, said he was wrangled into service with the promise of a ballroom full of women staring at him. (We totally were). Then he introduced his lovely fiancee, attorney Marilee Fiebig. We dashed out in between courses to eye her high-wattage bling. “He picked this himself,” she said, waving the hardware. They’ll tie the knot in March in Memphis. Sorry, ladies.

Thank you, anonymous TJ Holmes Wedding Watch Tipster!
