What’s Eliot Spitzer Worth to CNN?

spitzer_parker_7-21.jpgPage Six got their hands on some salary details for CNN’s soon-to-be-launched 8pm show. The gossip column claims Eliot Spitzer is set to make an annual salary “closer to $500,000 than $1 million, as is his co-host, Kathleen Parker.”

Insiders say CNN isn’t spending a lot on talent for the 8 p.m. show because its chances for success are slim.

There is still no EP for the show, but insiders tell TVNewser MSNBC’s Bill Wolff was wooed by CNN for the job. But we’ve learned Wolff is this close to signing a new deal to stay at MSNBC where he’ll continue to oversee “The Rachel Maddow Show” and remain VP of primetime programs for the network.

Tonight is also Campbell Brown‘s final night as a CNN anchor. She announced in May she’d be leaving the network. Brown left NBC for CNN three years ago this week.
