CNN's Brown Out: Cooper's 360 Moves to 10 p.m. Slot
Mediaweek ^ | nov. 2, 2005 | By Stephanie D. Smith

Aaron Brown is out at CNN, and Anderson Cooper will take over Brown’s 10 p.m. time slot, effective Monday.

The shakeup comes as a result of some prime time scheduling moves that CNN made official Wednesday. Cooper will take his 7 p.m. showcase, Anderson Cooper 360°, to the 10-midnight spot, formerly occupied by Brown’s NewsNight. Cooper’s old spot will be filled by an additional hour of The Situation Room, hosted by Wolf Blitzer.

In a memo to staffers, CNN president Jon Klein said the veteran anchor “will be leaving CNN and is very much looking forward to some well-deserved time off with his family.”

Since mid-September, Brown and Cooper had been paired on NewsNight, as Klein sought to capitalize on Cooper’s surge in popularity in the wake of his coverage of Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath.

Brown joined CNN in 2001 and first came to prominence with his on-air reporting from New York on Sept. 11 of that year. Cooper joined CNN as a weekend anchor in December 2001 and began hosting Anderson Cooper 360° in March 2003.

In his note to staffers, Klein said praised Brown for his “stellar” work as an anchor, adding “there is no question that he will be missed.”

Brown was not permitted to offer an opposing viewpoint.

AARON BROWN HAS COMPANY.

2005 - Liberal Mount Rushmore Implodes and Crumbles

Broadcast journalist Ted Koppel, the face of late-night newscast "Nightline" for a quarter century, will anchor the show for the last time on November 22, but ABC News has not decided who will replace him, the network said on Thursday.

Koppel, 65, becomes the latest in a string of veteran network news anchors to sign off in recent months, following Tom Brokaw of NBC, Dan Rather of CBS and Koppel's ABC News colleague, the late Peter Jennings.

Don't watch CNN much but couldn't stomach Brown anytime I checked them out. One of the wierdest anchors ever. I guess he was trying to drip compassion and sympathy but he just came off as wierd and self obsessed.

I don't thinks it's fair to say the Hurricane is using Cooper to get attention by exploiting a disaster.
