Slotted for daytime anchor, host of 'Missing Persons'

NEW YORK — Anchor Diane Dimond will jump from CNBC to sister net MSNBC, where she will serve as a daytime anchor and correspondent as well as host of “Missing Persons,” a series of hourlong primetime news specials.

“Diane’s experience as an anchor and reporter makes her a valuable addition to MSNBC,” said Erik Sorenson, the news cabler’s VP and general manager.

“Missing Persons,” which tells the stories of people who have vanished under criminal, unusual or questionable circumstances, will debut at 9 p.m. Friday.

At CNBC, Dimond was co-host of “Upfront Tonight.” Previously, she anchored and reported at National Public Radio, “Extra,” “Hard Copy,” and “A Current Affair.”
