Details have finally emerged about Erin Burnett‘s new CNN show, revealed just now via the former CNBC hosts twitter feed. Burnett tweeted out a link to a 10 second promotional video that announces the title of her new show, OutFront, also revealing a gritty-but-cool-yet-still-accessible graphics package and soundtrack that befits the new CNN program for 7PM. No specific debut date was announced, though her tweet did say “in September.”
Burnett is a well regarded news veteran who has household name recognition for the financial news set (from her time at CNBC) and has high expectations to improve the lead-in ratings for CNN’s new slate of primetime shows, that has not been helped by the tepid ratings of John King USA.
Burnett can be heard providing voiceover tracks proclaiming her desire for people to say that her show is “smart,” and that her show will be “authentic” and “have courage.” These are certainly all good things for any show to aspire to, especially a new CNN program set to debut this Fall.
