Former CNN news guy T.J. Holmes, who left a year ago to join BET was back on cable news Saturday but NOT on CNN.
Holmes was hanging out anchoring on MSNBC. MSNBC insiders tell BMS Holmes is doing some holiday fill-in work for them.
Holmes’ show on BET earlier was seen as a move the network was expanding its news presence.
In April, the network announced Holmes would host a daily late-night conversation/comedy/current events program called “Don’t Sleep.” But in October, just 6 weeks after launch, the show was scaled back to only one night a week.
Holmes reportedly was not happy that his show was trimmed back and is now looking at other networks including MSNBC.
STAY tuned, I’m sure an announcement will be coming in the new year about Holmes’ show getting axed and the news guy going back to his roots at a network or cable news network.
