Candy Crowley's Advice for Erin On Success at CNN

State of the Union's Candy Crowley has some advice for Erin (or is that @ErinBurnettCNN?) as she prepares to launch Erin Burnett OutFront on Monday evening: get on Twitter and send out some tweets. Yup. Somewhere along the way, Candy (er, @CrowleyCNN, that is) developed two top rules for surviving at CNN. One involves Twitter, and the other deals with CNN expense reports.

John King at the Magic Wall: The Erin Burnett You Don't Know

CNN's John King has a way of getting the story other reporters miss–and nobody's better about breaking it down visually at his world-famous "Magic Wall." Usually, JK's crunching exit polls or demographic data on election night. You've probably never seen him explain the life of Erin Burnett.

Well, now you can. John's welcome to Erin includes a few surprises (field hockey, anyone?), so have a look and enjoy.

Anderson's Welcome for Erin

CNN's Anderson Cooper has a new neighbor starting Monday night, and Anderson was kind enough to take time out to send over a welcome message for Erin. We're really hoping this friendly relationship between Erin Burnett OutFront and AC 360 endures.

And Anderson: we like cookies, brownies, you know, just the occasional gift basket in the newsroom.

Piers Morgan Crashes Erin's Rehearsal, Confronts Her Over Trying To Get Him Fired

The man who–until now–had been CNN's "newest nightly name," Piers Morgan, crashed a rehearsal for Erin Burnett's OutFront, complimenting Erin on her new set and show–but also showing he hasn't quite forgotten the comments Erin made about him on Celebrity Apprentice. "You stuck the knife straight in my back," he said.

Piers (who was not "fired" by Donald Trump as a result of Erin's comments, but went on to win) had a few choice (but joking) words of his own, telling Erin he'd come into her studio and interrupted rehearsals to wish her "total, abject failure."

More seriously, Piers urged Erin to be true to herself and share her views on the news every night. "I just want to tune in at seven o'clock and get your opinion on what's going on. I'm actually more interested in your opinion than the people you bring on."
