Newly hired CNN anchor Campbell Brown sat down with The Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz to chat about her hiring, her new show, her pregnancy and more… “I’m not Bill O’Reilly. I’m not Keith Olbermann. I’m not going to do opinion. That’s not who I am,” says Brown.
Kurtz raised two “intriguing questions: Why are only two other women (Greta Van Susteren of Fox and Nancy Grace of Headline News) on the air as prime-time cable news hosts? And is it possible to succeed with an 8 p.m. show built on news and interviews?”
Brown’s show premieres on CNN in November.
