Brooke Baldwin Got the Last Laugh on CNN Today: She Guest Hosted for Ellen DeGeneres on Her Talk Show


Brooke Baldwin got the old heave ho from CNN recently, quite unceremoniously. They thought she was old news.

Today Brooke got the last laugh on CNN. She guest hosted Ellen DeGeneres’ syndicated talk show today and was great. The show has an average of 1 million viewers vs. CNN’s small viewership at the same hour– 3pm. Good for Brooke! She was a natural, too. Let’s hope this is the start of many cool jobs for her away from CNN.
