Anderson Cooper is losing his CNN sidekick.
No, not Kathy Griffin. Cooper bid goodbye to his “Anderson Cooper 360” co-host Erica Hill on Monday’s (Jan. 11) show. Hill, who’s been splitting time between CNN and working co-anchor of CBS’ Saturday “Early Show,” is moving to CBS News full-time.
“It is with a very heavy heart that I say goodbye,” Cooper said, while on a split screen Hill fought back tears. “I cannot imagine doing this program without Erica Hill, and I cannot express how much I’m going to miss you.”
Cooper then offered up a montage of some of the funnier moments from their time together, after which Hill said her goodbyes, admonishing Cooper, “Just don’t like Kelly Ripa more than me.” Have a look.
