Leanne DeRosa began her career with CBS6 in Albany as a general assignment reporter in 2017.

She was recently officially named weekend anchor at the station.

DeRosa was a fill-in at the anchor desk after Emily DeFeciani departed the station during Spring.

Times Union had the report.

“I know you’ve seen me on the anchor desk through the summer, but now it’s *official* and I’m excited to announce I’ve been named CBS6’s Weekend Evening Anchor!” she posted on social media. “I’ve been loving the new gig, and I’m very thankful for the opportunity. I’ll still be reporting a few days during the week too.”

Per her post, she’ll anchor on Saturday and Sunday’s at 6, 6:30 and 11 pm EST.

CNN will host the first presidential debate on Thursday, June 27th. ABC News was scheduled to broadcast the second debate. Now, it will have access to both.

The network will simulcast the 90-minute debate next week, joining PBS as a partner to make the event more accessible.

In addition to airing the entire debate live, ABC News will feature a one-hour pre-debate special at 8 PM ET led by ABC World News Tonight anchor David Muir. The network will also provide a post-debate analysis show hosted by Muir and Linsey Davis — the two moderators for its September debate. The network will also have analysis from democrat strategist Donna Brazile and republican strategist Reince Priebus in its post-debate coverage.

Mary Bruce, Martha Raddatz, Jonathan Karl, Pierre Thomas, Matt Gutman, Rebecca Jarvis, Rachel Scott, Terry Moran, James Longman, Mireya Villarreal, and Rick Klein will all also contribute to coverage of the debate featuring former President Donald Trump (R) and President Joe Biden (D).

The announcement that ABC News would serve as a simulcast partner for the debate comes on the heels of a similar announcement by PBS. PBS NewsHour anchors Geoff Bennett and Amna Nawaz will be on-location in the CNN studios to host coverage.

Harris Faulkner: CNN in ‘Litgeous Territory’ For Criticizing Fox News for ‘Cheap Fake’ Videos

“Got to be careful with that. That’s a felony.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre called videos purporting to show the cognitive decline of President Joe Biden “cheap fakes.” On CNN, Anderson Cooper claimed some of the videos — including those airing on Fox News — were “selectively edited.” That caught the ire of Harris Faulkner.

On Tuesday morning, Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade dismissed the criticism from Cooper as purely partisan, stating that the anchor gets his show content directly from the Biden administration.

Faulkner took issue with the statement from Cooper that video clips were “selectively edited,” arguing that CNN may be guilty of slander.

“That is litigious territory where they’re going there. They better have some proof of that,” Faulkner said before noting that her Outnumbered co-host Emily Compagno had previously shown unedited footage. “Got to be careful with that. That’s a felony.”

The criticism from Faulkner of CNN wasn’t the first back-and-forth of the two cable networks Tuesday. On Monday, The Five’s Jeanine Pirro claimed CNN was attempting to help President Joe Biden in the upcoming televised debate by allowing the candidates to appear at the event seated. However, CNN has denied that assertion.

CNN Refutes Claims From Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro About Presidential Debate

“CNN’s proposed format was to have both candidates stand and both sides agreed to the rules when they agreed to debate.”

During Fox News’ The Five Monday, panelist Jeanine Pirro claimed CNN has mandated that the upcoming Presidential debate will be held with both candidates seated for the 90-minute event, in an effort to help President Joe Biden. The network has denied that accusation.

“They’re out there saying this election is not about age. Joe and the other guy are about the same age, even for the debate is– as Jesse is saying, they’re gonna be seated,” Pirro posited. “We don’t even get to see them walk in. They’ll be seated, so there is one less obstacle to worry about for Biden.”

However, CNN has denied that assertion.

“CNN’s proposed format was to have both candidates stand and both sides agreed to the rules when they agreed to debate,” a network spokesperson told Mediaite.

The argument presented by Pirro echoes that of a viral post on X from an account labeled as the Washington Reporter. The account only features 1,700 followers, but a post claiming that the Biden campaign was looking to renegotiate terms of the debate received more than 2.8 million views on the platform.
