CNN Publicist Heads to NBCU

PRNewser has learned that Christine Pietz, a publicist at CNN, is leaving the network for a similar post at NBCUniversal. New York-based Pietz, who is the primary publicist for CNN’s American Morning will be joining the communications group at NBCU’s TV distribution unit.

It’s a return of sorts for Pietz, who joined CNN from CNBC in 2006. In her new role, Pietz will work from the CNBC campus in Englewood Cliffs, NJ where NBCU’s TV distribution group is based.

The CNN morning program is undergoing other changes. TVNewser reported earlier this month that the show’s co-anchor John Roberts will be moving to CNN HQ in Atlanta and that executive producer Jamie Kraft is leaving CNN to become senior broadcast producer for NBC Nightly News. Pietz’s last day at CNN is Wednesday, she’ll join NBC on January 10.
