To The Hollywood Reporter Thanks to some vigilant fans on Facebook, I’ve been made aware of my #1 position on this week’s “Top TV Personalities Social Media Ranking!” https://bit.ly/2nvMKFx I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for the honor, sincerely, and offer one small clarification – if I may. I no longer work for CNN. Apparently, you guys have an old photo on file that features me standing in front of one of those ubiquitous backdrops covered with CNN’s logo.
