Jeff Zucker officially joins CNN on Monday, but he’s already making his mark. Insiders tell us the new CNN Worldwide president and uber producer has been giving input on CNN’s Inauguration Day plans. It was Zucker’s idea to incorporate HLN talent into CNN’s coverage. So expect to see HLN anchors Robin Meade and Christi Paul on CNN Monday.
Zucker will be in Washington, DC for his first day, we’re told. (No pressure at all, control room.)
Zucker has already held town hall meetings with staffers in Atlanta, New York and Washington, DC and has plans to visit the Los Angles bureau soon. He’ll be based in New York.
