Burnett: “It’s a Wonderful Moment For Us As Journalists”

burnett_2-19.bmpCNBC’s Erin Burnett is profiled in the current issue of Emmy Magazine by Christine Champagne. “Her knack for newsgathering and natural on-camera persona have played a part in her growing fame, but so have recent events,” she writes.

“Right now in Washington, people are watching us,” says Burnett. “People who are making the ultimate legislative and capital allocation decisions are listening, so it’s a wonderful moment for us as journalists to make a difference.”

Burnett is also asked about her future. “I cover business and money, which is a niche in journalism, but it’s one of the most important things in terms of making the world go round. I think being able to have it as my base of strength is great,” she says. “But when you talk about telling broader stories, yeah, I’d have to say I’d like to do that.”
