After nine years at CNN Headline News, Florida A&M University (FAMU) alumna Denise Hendricks recently announced her decision to leave the network for a new opportunity with MSNBC.  “This position seemed like the right position, the right fit for me as far as the company and the mission of the network, along with where these shows were going compared to some of the other ones I was getting inquiries about,” she said.

A 1992 graduate from the School of Journalism and Graphic Communications, Hendricks has been the senior producer of the Headline News Morning Express with Robin Meade since 2013. During that time, she produced network series and sponsored content on a vast range of topics including, criminal cases, the Wrongly Convicted series, HLN’s Giving Express series, College Tailgating Series and political coverage.

Prior to her position with CNN, Hendricks previously worked as a producer for “The Revolution” talk show, “The Mo’Nique Show” and as an associate producer/field producer for “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

With her move to MSNBC, Hendricks will lend her producing talents to the network’s successful weekend morning shows, “The Cross Connection with Tiffany Cross” and “The Sunday Show with Jonathan Capehart.”

“I am excited about being a part of a network that is seeing a tremendous amount of growth,” said the Delta Sigma Theta soror. “I am excited to be a part of two ground-breaking shows with two really dynamic hosts and producing teams that really want to cover stories that really matter to our community and to the world.”

Sharing the news on her birthday, Hendricks received an outpouring of love and encouragement from her community. “I felt grateful and blessed that so many people want to see me doing really well, see me succeed and genuinely happy for me to step into this role,” said Hendricks. “Overall, I am just grateful for all the support, encouragement and well wishes.”

We wish her the absolute best as she reaches new heights in her career! Send her some love in the comments below!
