“Roland is a solid journalist and a terrific communicator,” said a CNN spokesperson in an email today. “He’s been a regular part of the No Bias, No Bull family and our audience knows him well. He has also served as a contributor/analyst for CNN, and in fact, he’s been transparent about whom he has supported for president, whether it was George H. W. Bush, George W. Bush or Barack Obama. We look forward to Roland’s smart, energetic and spirited reporting in this role, and in the future on CNN.”
The spokesperson also said CNN “plans to develop a weekend program with Roland” once Brown returns.
“Campbell Brown: No Bias, No Bull” CNN at 8pmET was down 6% in Total Viewers and 21% in the A25-54 demo during February ’09 compared to last year (CNN Election Center, with rotating hosts) — the only 8pmET news program to decline. It finished fourth in both categories. Brown took over in mid-March ’08.
