CNN announced today that Erick Erickson of Macon, editor of RedState.com – who is making a name for himself as a conservative provocateur and rabble-rouser – and has joined the ranks of that network’s contributors.
The downside: Far fewer steak dinners with Sean Hannity.
This from CNN:
Erickson will appear weeknights on John King, USA, which launches Monday, March 22, as well as provide perspective and commentary to other programs across the network.
“I grew up in Dubai and then in rural Louisiana as an obsessive news junkie. CNN was the only place to go for nonstop news,” said Erickson. “Joining CNN is like coming home and being in Atlanta makes the decision right for me and my family.”
