Alisyn Camerota has joined CNN as a news anchor after 16 years at Fox News. She parted ways with Fox back in March and her fans missed her. Camerota started with CNN on Monday July 14 and she will be contributing to all programs across CNN.
Because of her versatility the network is going to move Camerota around to help cover the news venues until the lineup is scheduled for the fall. This shuffling is temporary with the cable news network promising to announce a permanent role in the coming months, according to MSN News today.
President of CNN Worldwide, Jeff Zucker, knows a great anchor when he sees one and that is what he saw in Camerota prompting him to eye the seasoned journalist for the CNN family. He described their latest anchor as having a presence on camera that is "very hard to find."
He also commented on her "great curiosity" and "passion" for news, that she brings with her to her new career at CNN. Camerota said it was Zucker's vision consisting of innovative storytelling that prompted her to accept the offer to come to CNN.
Alisyn it the perfect news anchor in many ways. Besides being so gorgeous, she is extremely intelligent and relies on nothing but her intellect to get her job done. She said she is "honored to join the ranks" of the CNN journalists.
Many of the Fox viewers got to know Alisyn on "Fox and Friends Weekends," where she co-anchored the weekend news-talk show on Saturday and Sunday mornings. She had the personality to cover the most disturbing of news with empathy and the seriousness it warranted. Her talent for reporting could also make you laugh while covering a fun human-interest story.
When she left her weekend gig at Fox, Camerota was the co-host of "America's News Headquarters" on the Fox Channel. Before coming over to Fox 16 years ago, Camerota was with NBC, where she traveled all over the nation and covered compelling stories of everyday people for "REALlife."
Not too many knew that she spent five years as a crime reporter for "America's Most Wanted." This is one talented lady and CNN is lucky to get her! Besides making new fans, which she will do at CNN, she is bound to have many of her previous Fox fans look for her on CNN.
