CNN hires new president

leave a comment »

CNN recently named Jeff Zucker, former president and chief executive of NBC Universal, president. The new organization said it hired Zucker to be a “magnet of talent” and to broaden the definition of “news” for CNN. What I found most interesting about this Washington Post article is where it said that CNN’s ratings have been hurting for some time. I read another article after the election that said Fox news normally got better ratings than any of it’s competitors, which is surprising because of all the criticism it faces. I watch NBC, Fox and CNN, so I’m not partial to any organization. However, looking at the success Zucker seems to have had, this could be what CNN needs.
