Erin Burnett has covered the war in Ukraine extensively, and was on location covering the Russian invasion. Burnett was also at the forefront of reporting on the coronavirus pandemic.

During her tenure at CNN, Burnett has covered countless breaking stories on location - from the Paris and Brussels terror attacks to the Las Vegas and Orlando mass shootings and Hurricane Sandy. She’s reported from around the world, including Iran, Afghanistan, Cuba and across Africa and Asia. Her investigative report on terror funding identified a Qatari financier whom the U.S. Treasury Department subsequently designated a global terrorist. Part of Burnett’s national security coverage includes a documentary “The Truth About Benghazi.”

Burnett’s documentary work also includes an investigation into then President Trump’s business activities “The Trump Family Business” and a deep dive into women in America on the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage.

Burnett joined CNN from CNBC where she anchored two flagship programs and contributed to Meet the Press.
