Brian Steinberg Senior TV Editor You can’t tie these anchors down. MSNBC’s Symone Sanders and CNN’s Kaitlan Collins have both moved to WME for representation after previously being signed to UTA, according to three people familiar with the matter.
Sanders launched a new Sunday program in May of last year, and her contract with MSNBC ends in early 2024, according to two of these people.
Collins is one of three co-anchors at “CNN This Morning,” which executives at the Warner Bros. Discovery-owned outlet are trying to improve after a rocky start, and where the three hostshave had to work through on-set tensions.
The defections of the two anchors from one big agency to the other puts a spotlight on the never-ending battle between Hollywood heavyweights to woo new clients.
