Breaking: Tonight on "AC360," Anderson Cooper announced that Erica Hill is leaving the program and CNN "for an exciting future at CBS News." Earlier, we reported that an announcement would be coming this evening.
Hill has been co-host of CBS' "Early Show" Saturday Edition with Chris Wragge since September of 2008.
Hill had been with the CNN since 2003, when she started as an anchor for Headline News. She had been a full-time correspondent and substitute anchor for "AC360" since 2008. In recent weeks, she'd also been one of the rotating anchors for "CNN Tonight."
An emotional Hill appeared on screen with Cooper as he wished her luck and said, "While I'm happy for her and her entire family, it is with a very heavy heart I say good-bye. I cannot imagine doing this program without Erica Hill and I cannot really express how much I'm going to miss you."
After a montage of moments from Hill's career at CNN aired, Hill said, "It was very tough decision to leave, but you know that I'm not going to be far and I sincerely hope it's not the last time we work together. We're a good team."
We are expecting an announcement from CBS News next week about Hill's new expanded role at the network.
Leaving one sinking ship for another.
Where she will rot in obscurity. Who watches CBS news???
Who is Erica HIll? Wouldn’t know her from the last reporterette I was on the tube.
Nope, despite the pictorial help, haven’t seen or heard of any of these people before except for teabagger Cooper.
Many moons ago, Erica Hill was on TechTV (a now extinct cable network).
Erica used to go back and forth with Beck on CNN’s Cable News. She seemed amused, even neutral to supportive of him.
Had a baby before Beck left and was promoted to CNN. She will surprise you all.
Beat me to it. Out of the frying pan and into the mirco-wave. Some career choice.
She is going from having 70 viewers to 11 viewers
Erica Hill is a Babe Deluxe!
Wake me up when it’s over.
Something about a rat and a sinking ship comes to mind.
