Poppy Harlow Named Anchor of CNN Newsroom Weekend
As a network correspondent–and now host–on CNN, Poppy Harlow makes sense of global events, breaking news, business, and economic news for millions viewers throughout North America and around the world. The former anchor of CNNMoney.com, and a previous business correspondent for CNN, CNN International, and HLN, Harlow has been steadily at the forefront of many of the biggest business news stories in recent history, including the global financial crisis of 2008, the World Economic Forum in Switzerland, Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting, and Fortune Brainstorm conferences. An impeccable interviewer, moderator, and keynote speaker, she brings her exceptional polish and expertise to every stage. We’re thrilled that Poppy was recently announced as the new anchor of CNN Newsroom Weekend on Saturdays from 3-6pm ET and 7-8pm ET, and Sundays from 5-8pm ET.
Based in New York City, Harlow will continue to cover breaking news and deliver feature reporting and investigative stories in addition to her new anchor role.
The announcement comes on the heels of a successful year for the correspondent whose long-form investigative pieces, including in-depth reporting on the General Motors recall crisis – specifically the story of one woman wrongly convicted in a deadly crash – aired across CNN prime time programming and CNNMoney.com.
Previously, Harlow was a New York based correspondent for CNN and an anchor/correspondent for CNNMoney.com. She also served as a business correspondent on CNN, CNN International and HLN, covering business and economic news and how it impacts policy and people around the globe.
Harlow, who has been with the network since 2008, has won the Gracie Award for Best Online Investigative Feature and SABEW’s Best in Business award.
