Poppy Harlow has been named anchor of CNN Newsroom Weekend on Saturdays from 3-6pm ET and 7-8pm ET, and Sundays from 5-8pm ET.
Based in New York City, Harlow will continue to cover breaking news and deliver feature reporting and investigative stories in addition to her new anchor role.
The announcement comes on the heels of a successful year for the correspondent whose long-form investigative pieces, including in-depth reporting on the General Motors recall crisis – specifically the story of one woman wrongly convicted in a deadly crash – aired across CNN prime time programming and CNNMoney.com.
Previously, Harlow was a New York based correspondent for CNN and an anchor/correspondent for CNNMoney.com. She also served as a business correspondent on CNN, CNN International and HLN, covering business and economic news and how it impacts policy and people around the globe.
Harlow, who has been with the network since 2008, has won the Gracie Award for Best Online Investigative Feature and SABEW's Best in Business award.
After 10 months at the helm of General Motors, CNN’s Poppy Harlow sits down with the first female head of a Big 3 automaker, Mary Barra. Among the topics discussed were GM’s recalls, the NFL and driverless cars.
In the in-depth interview, Poppy asked Barra if the NFL and Roger Goodell took the right steps when responding to the recent crisis. Barra said that it was "completely unacceptable," adding “I think they have an opportunity to not only make very important changes that will set the tone for the NFL, but also to do something that has more far reaching implications."
When asked if she would consider pulling advertising dollars from the NFL sponsorship if she doesn’t see changes, Barra tells Poppy that she believes “they will do the right thing,” without giving specifics.
Chris Cuomo, Michaela Periera and Brooke Baldwin anchor CNN’s live simulcast coverage of the 5-Alarm building fire in New York City. CNN.com continues with live updates and video.
