Erin Burnett “Is Everywhere”

erin_burnett.jpg“Less than two years after joining the business channel,” writes the Washington Post’s Howard Kurtz in a profile of CNBC’s Erin Burnett, “(She) is everywhere, from NBC Nightly News to Hardball. She’s been praised by Rush Limbaugh, mocked by Jon Stewart and ogled by Chris Matthews.”

And speaking of the Matthews incident: “During an MSNBC interview this month, Matthews egged her on: ‘Could you get a little closer to the camera? . . . Really close.’ When Burnett expressed puzzlement, Matthews exclaimed: ‘You look great! . . . No, you’re beautiful. I’m just kidding. I’m just kidding. You’re a knockout.’ Burnett now calls it ‘a strange moment.’”

So what are Burnett’s future plans? The article says she “doesn’t rule out a future beyond business news — and recently hired Katie Couric‘s agent.”
