Observations: Anchor Updates

• A lot of people have been asking recently about Fredricka Whitfield. She is anchoring CNN Newsroom today.






Linda Stouffer was seen anchoring Prime News with Erica Hill last night. Today she's anchoring the Afternoon edition of Headline News.





• Bonnie Schneider was reporting on a story about a Robot contest in Atlanta. Maybe since she is just as freelancer in the Weather department, she can do other stories as well.

Linda Stouffer anchored Prime News on Thursday as well.

CNN often sends their weather reporters out on weekend mornings to cover community events, like robot fights, apparently (they did that last year too, but Reynolds Wolf covered it), stuff at the Atlanta aquarium, charity events, generally just your typical weekend morning fluff. It's almost always someone from weather who covers it though.

Fredericka Whitfield had reported from South Africa during the month of June.

On Friday she returned to the anchor desk filling in for Heidi Collins. Tony Harris mentioned her reporting from South Africa and a trip to China as well.

Do you guys know if any of this
will have anything to do with
CNN HD? Don Lemon recently went
to India and Fredericka went
to South Africa and China.I have
not seen any reporting on these
recent trips. Is this a part
of a huge September launch for
a new channel called CNN HD?
Since that means CNN will have
another 24/7 channel.

Regarding CNN HD: I think this will just be the same as CNN domestic, but in high-definition (HD). As far as I know, it is not a new network per se.

My big concern-- Keeping Linda as a weekday fixture, not just a fill-in whenever needed. She's got more experience than some others put together! What crap if they've demoted her-she should leave! No daily dose of Stouffer Mon-Fri.? They'll lose me as a viewer!

Anon 6:31 PM: Someone on another forum mentioned they thought Linda was pregnant. Maybe she is and wants a reduced schedule. I guess we'll find out, because I bet she would've filled in for Christi Paul and not Mike Galanos, who knows. My E-Mails to CNN regarding this issue have not been returned.
