CNN taps anchor Hays

In addition, she will be economics correspondent for 'Dobbs'

CNN has nabbed CNBC’s “Squawk Box” correspondent Kathleen Hays to anchor a new program on CNN Money when the net debuts this fall.

In addition, Hays will become an economics correspondent for “Lou Dobbs Moneyline,” beginning in September.

The new as yet untitled program will distill the news from Wall Street for mainstream viewers. It will also provide additional economic reports on major stories for CNN and CNN Money.

While at CNBC, Hays covered economic and financial news and served as credit market reporter for “Squawk Box.” Since joining CNBC in 1993, she has worked in a variety of capacities, including on-air economics editor and correspondent for several programs, including “Business Center.”

Separately, CNBC announced it has hired Marci Rossell to replace Hays as chief economist. Rossell, who was previously veepee, corporate economist and investment spokesperson at OppenheimerFunds, Inc., will appear as part of the “Squawk Box” ensemble, as well as on other CNBC programs. While she has been a guest on various financial news shows at CNBC and elsewhere, this post marks Rossell’s first regular TV gig.
