Announcement on ‘AC360′

ac360logo_1-8.jpgFirst on TVNewser: Tipsters tell us to expect a special announcement tonight on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”

Earlier in the week, we heard that correspondent and substitute anchor Erica Hill would be giving up her role on the program in order to move to CBS full-time. She has been anchoring CBS’ “Early Show” Saturday Edition since 2008 in addition to her duties on CNN.

We also hear that CBS News will make an announcement about Hill’s expanded role with the network sometime next week.

> UPDATE: At the end of the broadcast, Anderson Cooper announced that Hill would be leaving the program. “First time I worked with Erica on air, I knew I found someone I wanted to work with every night,” he said.

With an emotional Hill on screen next to him, he announced that it would be Hill’s last night on the program and that “she’s moving on to an exciting future at CBS News.”
