Erica Hill Becomes New Weekend Today Anchor

Nov 1 2012, 7:08pm CDT | by

After CNN and CBS

Erica Hill, the talking head who has jumped around from more news programs than a bored prime-time channel surfer, has officially found a new home on NBC's Today show. She will become the newest co-anchor of the weekend version of the daily morning broadcast.

Hill first came to the national spotlight on CNN's Headline News channel. She managed to work that into a spot on network TV when she became the co-host of the weekend edition of CBS's Early Show.

Then, CBS decided to radically shake up The Early Show, and at that point Hill was appointed as the co-anchor of the more lucrative weekday position.

But then, just a matter of months later, CBS shaked up its morning show yet again, and Hill (along with every other member of the CBS Early Show team) was given the boot.

Keep in mind, all of this happened in less than two years. Take a look at your favorite news program and think about how long you've seen those faces. For one person to move around so quickly to so many places is pretty rare.

Now, Hill will be moving from CBS's Upper West Side location in Manhattan to Rockefeller Center, just a few blocks away, to NBC Studios.

Hill will join Lester Holt, Jenna Wolfe, and Dylan Dreyer for the broadcasts. "I couldn’t be happier to have such a strong team in place with Lester, Erica, Jenna and Dylan. We just celebrated 25 years of weekends here at TODAY, and this is the perfect ensemble to lead us towards our next milestone," said Weekend Today executive producer Dee Dee Thomas in a statement.

Constantine Season 1 Episode 1 Review: Non Est Asylum

Oct 24 2014 10:00pm CDT | Source: TV Fanatic

Though Constantine Season 1 Episode 1 was okay for a pilot, I must admit it didn't blow me away or anything. That's fine because I thought the cast was excellent and I'm sure this is one of those series where the show improves tremendously as it goes along. With people like Daniel Cerone (Dexter, The Mentalist), David S. Goyer (the Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel, Da Vinci's Demons) and Mark Verheiden (Falling Skies, Battlestar Galactica) on the creative team ...

Constantine Season 1 Episode 1 Preview: Fighting Demons

Oct 24 2014 6:09pm CDT | Source: TV Fanatic

Constantine hits our TV screens tonight! Are you ready to meet DC's demon hunter and master of the occult? This guy is no do-gooder like Gotham's Jim Gordon. He's not a reformed vigilante like Oliver Queen from Arrow, nor has superpowers like Barry Allen on The Flash.
