CNN: Ferguson-Free?

Posted By on Thu, Aug 13, 2009 at 12:33 PM

TVNewser reported this week that CNN will no longer book talk radio hosts on the news network. Among others whose radio faces might disappear from your boob tube: Memphis' own Ben Ferguson.

From the report: "In his morning editorial meeting today, CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein asked his show producers to avoid booking talk radio hosts. 'Complex issues require world class reporting,' Klein is quoted as saying, adding that talk radio hosts too often add to the noise, and that what they say is 'all too predictable.'

But this means other talk radio hosts who appear regularly on CNN, probably won't in the near future including names like Stephanie Miller, Michael Medved, and Ben Ferguson."

Remember this?

Good times.

And one to grow on:
