Cillizza Moves to CNN

Marlborough, Connecticut native Chris Cillizza is leaving his long-time home at the Washington Post for CNN.

Cillizza started The Fix blog at the Post. He has also severed as an analyst for MSNBC.

He’ll have an editorial role at CNN, serve as a commentator and have a web presence.

Gerry Brooks Profile

Back in the days of the Brooks File on WFSB at least one top manager at the station told Gerry Brooks he was not anchor material.

By the time he left channel 3 he was anchoring the 5p.m. news and more than 20 years later he’s still anchoring the news at NBC CT and is one of the longest running anchors in Connecticut television news. We guess that manager was wrong.

Rand Richards Cooper has an extensive profile of Brooks in this month’s Hartford Magazine with photos by Cloe Poisson.
