CNN PRESIDENT HOLIDAYS IN NANTUCKET DURING NETWORK HURRICANE COVERAGE
CNN President Jonathan Klein spent last week on a posh island off Massachusetts while his network was down in the muck, covering Hurricane Katrina, the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports.
Reporter Lloyd Grove quotes a CNN rep: “Coverage plans for the hurricane were set before he left, and Jon was in constant contact with his deputies and CNN the entire time.”
Klein has held the title of CNN president since November 2004.
Klein’s holiday in Nantucket did not apparently hurt CNN in the ratings; the all-news network saw audience levels reach the highest levels in years, with host Aaron Brown even topping FOXNEWS one night last week in the demo.
Despite the rare Brown demo win, FOXNEWS still commands a wide lead over its competition.
There’s hardly enough there for the wingers to even develop a mild froth.
Not that they won’t try…
