Ex-CNBCer Jonathan Wald in Talks with CNN

B&C’s Marissa Guthrie reports former CNBC president Jonathan Wald is in line for the EP job for CNN’s upcoming Piers Morgan show which will replace “Larry King Live” at 9pmET. Insiders confirm with TVNewser the talks are ongoing but that no deal is in place.

Wald would bring considerable hard news experience to the job. He left CNBC in 2009, after shepherding the network’s business day programming through the financial crisis; a period that saw unprecedented ratings growth for the NBC Universal-owned business channel. Prior to CNBC, Wald held multiple executive producer jobs at NBC News including at flagship broadcasts Today and Nightly News during Tom Brokaw‘s tenure. He’s currently on the adjunct faculty at the journalism school at Columbia University.

Guthrie also reports new CNN president Ken Jautz met with EP candidates last week and that he’d like to bring someone in soon “”so that the nuts and bolts of the show can begin to be hammered.”
