“The Deficit At CNN In The Past Was Skill Level of Producer,” Phil Kent Says

Phil Kent “believes that CNN has finally found its groove,” according to B&C. “He says the biggest change by CNN President Jon Klein, a former CBS News executive, has nothing to do with Anderson Cooper. It’s assigning stronger producers to run individual shows. ‘The deficit at CNN in the past was skill level of producer,’ Kent says.

When the network is hot, no one in TV does a better job gathering news, but its shows weren’t compelling when the war, storm or scandal died down. Nodding to Fox News’ successful talk and commentary shows, he says, ‘We have a competitor that has a programming formula that works better in a slow news environment.’”
