When replacing Burnett, CNBC should promote from within
Louis Bedigian of Benzinga writes that business news network CNBC should consider some of its staff, such as Courtney Reagan, Nicole Lapin and Amanda Drury when looking to replace recently departed anchor Erin Burnett.
Bedigian writes that Reagan is “a force to be reckoned with. As of March 2011, this talented journalist was named general assignment reporter for CNBC’s Business Day programming.
“As a former segment producer for On the Money, Reagan pitched, wrote and produced feature and news hits and packages for the program. Though she began her career at CNBC at the newsdesk, Reagan also worked on Dateline NBC and Weekend Today while participating in the NBC Page program.
“Further, she recognizes the value of higher education. Though she holds bachelor’s degrees in finance and mass communication, Reagan isn’t ready to quit. When she’s not covering the news for CNBC, she’s pursuing her MBA from NYU’s Stern School of Business.
