The Atlanta Journal Constitution writes about yesterday’s HLN news…
Rolando Santos is leaving his post as executive vice president and general manager of Headline News, a job he has held since 2002, to become senior vice president of international relations with CNN International.
He will start his new duties this month. CNN spokeswoman Janine Iamunno said Santos’ duties will be absorbed by Ken Jautz, who oversees Headline News, and another network executive, Bill Galvin. In addition, Headline News is changing its 4-6 p.m. news programming, which had been anchored by Kathleen Kennedy and Thomas Roberts.
Iammuno said Kennedy and Roberts will remain with Headline News but in other roles. Their two-hour slot will be filled by expanding earlier blocks of programming from three hours each to four hours.
