Continuing CNN’s recent trend of announcing moves via tweet, CNN/US President Jon Klein announces today that “Campbell Brown” EP Janelle Rodriguez becomes CNN’s new Director of Programming in Atlanta. Kathy O’Hearn takes her spot in New York.
O’Hearn was once executive producer of ABC’s “This Week,” and left ABC News in 2009 to take over CNNI’s “Amanpour.” In an odd twist, Christiane Amanpour will be leaving that CNN program to become anchor of “This Week.” Rodriguez took over EP duties at “Campbell Brown” in May of 2009, when she moved from EP of “American Morning.”
According to Klein, Rodriguez will “arrive just in time to work with all of our show teams in launching our new set and continuing the ambitious development of our dayside and weekend programming.” She’ll continue to report to Bart Feder, SVP or Programming.
Klein’s note to staff after the jump.
