Recently departed CNN chief business correspondent Christine Romans is headed to NBC News, reports Brian Steinberg of Variety.
Steinberg reports, “The CNN veteran, who has been with the Warner Bros. Discovery network for 24 years as a business correspondent and early-morning anchor, is leaving and likely to land at NBC News in an as-yet-unannounced role, according to two people familiar with the matter. She announced her exit on Friday’s broadcast of “Early Start,” the CNN crack-of-dawn program she has anchors since 2014.
“NBC News declined to make executives available for comment. Roman’s new role could make use of her deep background in business and financial journalism.
”I’ve decided I’m ready for a new chapter,’ Romans said Friday morning. People familiar with the network characterize the decision as the anchor’s own, and not tied directly to any of the recent cost-cutting measures Warner Bros. Discovery has enacted in recent months.”
