First on TVNewser: CNN’s American Morning EP Janelle Rodriguez (pictured) is moving to prime time and will become the EP of Campbell Brown‘s 8pmET hour. Jamie Kraft, currently senior broadcast producer of “American Morning”, takes over as interim EP June 1, when Brown returns from maternity leave.
The move means David Doss, EP of Anderson Cooper 360 who also had been overseeing Brown’s hour, goes back to just AC360, as well as heading up long-form specials including the Planet in Peril franchise. With Doss heading the 8pmET hour, Brown’s demo ratings improved by 51% (March ’08-March ’09 vs. the prior year).
