CNN Publicist Heads to NBCU

PRNewser has learned that Christine Pietz, a publicist at CNN, is leaving the network for a similar post at NBCUniversal. New York-based Pietz, who is the primary publicist for CNN’s American Morning will be joining the communications group at NBCU’s TV distribution unit.

It’s a return of sorts for Pietz, who joined CNN from CNBC in 2006. In her new role, Pietz will work from the CNBC campus in Englewood Cliffs, NJ where NBCU’s TV distribution group is based.

The CNN morning program is undergoing other changes. TVNewser reported earlier this month that the show’s co-anchor John Roberts will be moving to CNN HQ in Atlanta and that executive producer Jamie Kraft is leaving CNN to become senior broadcast producer for NBC Nightly News. Pietz’s last day at CNN is Wednesday, she’ll join NBC on January 10.

Steve Schmidt has joined Edelman as Vice Chairman, Public Affairs, the agency said today. Schmidt was most recently a partner at Mercury Public Affairs, leading the firm’s operations in California.

He was also a key source for the best-selling book Game Change, which revealed behind the scenes information in regards to the 2008 U.S. presidential election. The above video is from Schmidt’s January 10th, 2010 appearance on CBS’ “60 Minutes,” where he spoke about the McCain presidential campaign, and their decision to add Sarah Palin to the ticket.

Schmidt served as senior advisor to John McCain‘s 2008 presidential campaign; campaign manager for the 2006 re-election of California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger; and was deputy assistant to the President and Counsellor to the Vice President in the White House, where he played leading roles on the confirmation teams for the nominations of both Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court. In addition, he was a member of the senior strategic planning group that directed Former President Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign.

Edelman says their U.S. Public Affairs practice has revenues of $60 million with a team of 170 serving clients including API, Business Roundtable, Monsanto, Oregon Bridge Delivery Partners, and Pfizer.
