Baby Burnett Out, Tapper In

Jake Tapper (L) gets ready to fill in for Erin Burnett (R) for three weeks in December. (Disclaimer: THESE ARE NOT ACTUALLY JAKE TAPPER AND ERIN BURNETT’S BELLIES!)

Erin Burnett is going on maternity leave, and that means CNN has a big ol’ round hole to fill at her 7:00 PM show. So who is stepping in for hosting duties? None other than DC’s very own Jake Tapper! (And also Don Lemon, but that’s FishbowlNY’s beat, so let’s focus on Tapper.) For the weeks of December 2nd, 9th and 16th, Jake will anchor Erin Burnett Outfront (is that really one word?) from 7 – 8 PM from Washington, according to a press release from CNN. He will continue to host his own show, The Lead, from 4 – 5 PM during that same time.

Don Lemon will then take over hosting duties for EBO the weeks of December 23rd, 30th and January 6th.
