Meet Erin Burnett & Her Hot News Show — 'OutFront'!

Wed, October 5, 2011 12:00pm EST by 8 Comments

If you’ve wanted to hear your daily news from a woman YOU can relate to, then tune in at 7 pm est to Erin Burnett on CNN. Here, she speaks out.

“Our main goal is to have people learn something and have fun,” Erin explains, taking a break from prepping her second show on the air . OutFront launched Oct. 3rd. “We’ll be focusing on the big issues of our time,” Burnett says.

Erin, a super-energetic 35-year-old, who grew up on a farm in Maryland and  earned her news chops as an anchor on Bloomberg television and CNBC before landing and launching OutFront on CNN.

She plans to be “tough, hard and firm in the dealing with issues and getting answers”, she tells   But she also wants to contribute to “making America as great as it can be.”

Erin doesn’t want to just be criticizing the politicians and other movers and shakers in America. She wants to point out “how we can constructively contribute,” to making America better as a country.

Naturally, she’ll cover the major news of the day like  featuring Donald Trump discussing the Amanda Knox verdict in her first show, since he’s been one of Amanda’s strongest and most outspoken supporters.

Timothy Geither, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury, appeared Oct. 4. “I don’t expect him to give me the answer to creating jobs. If it was that easy, they’d be doing that already,” explains Erin. “But I want his view on the possibility of a recession, the bank bail-outs and more.”

She also has assembled a “strike team” of experts to weigh in on the show with their opinions focused on their areas of expertise. “We’ll go straight to the people who are directly involved to get their views,” she says.

Now, as for her advice to you Hollywoodlifers: if you’re considering a career in journalism, does she advise you to do it in these difficult times?

“Absolutely yes,” she responds. “It’s a great time to be a journalist. Due to the explosion of citizen journalists around the world, there is an amazing amount of info to draw from AND there are an amazing variety of news outlets today — not just three news channels like there used to be,” she explains. “Really motivated people can see their own course!”

Just like you Erin — good luck!

I watch Out Front most every day. Erin is refreshing and I appreciate that she lets her guest talk without interupting.Erin is getting better everyday. I expect to see her someday as a major network news anchor.

She looks so much better at cnbc. Her makeup makes her look tired (not fresh). I hope they hire her old makeup artist;). I like her at cnbc, – relaxed, witty with a sense of humor. I’m sure she’ll be great at cnn with her own show.

Erin Burnet is using too much make up. She does not need to do that because he is prettier and too smart to use the make up. It must be her managers.

No I don’t want the news from a woman I can relate to. I want the news delivered in a straight, serious way with smirks and opinions. And just how many viewers can relate to Erin? She is clearly a snob without any desire to connect to real people. She mocks the protesters and ridicules their efforts. She is not a journalist. She was a talking head on CNBC – let’s not elevate her to international reporter status. This show will fail and hopefully CNN will give her slot to Anderson. At least he treats every story with dignity and waits until the end of the show to be silly.

Erin I have been a fan of yours for sometime and I am puzzled by the way that you reported on the IPhone yesterday. You showed a near empty Apple story with 5 times as many staff as costumers, with the question where are the people. Of course there weren’t people there because phones don’t go on sale until 10/14. Didn’t you know that? If you knew it why didn’t you say it? You looked uninformed or misleading (totally uncharacteristic for you) especially with the Bate and Switch lead. Any comment?
