Incoming CNN chief Jeff Zucker has reportedly been looking at print publications for new talent, seeking reporters in Hollywood to help the network beef up its coverage of show business, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.

Zucker has been sounding out reporters at the trade publications The Hollywood Reporter and Variety, the story says. His philosophy is that while a great reporter can be turned into a decent broadcaster, it’s tough to turn TV staff into great reporters, the piece notes.
