“I’ve been anchored for over 10 years, the majority of that time two hours in the afternoon And at that point, you know, the most influential presenters in our network, the highest paid, are men, “Baldwin said in an episode of the” On the Issues With Michele Goodwin “podcast this week.”My bosses, my executives are men The person who supervises CNN Dayside is a man, and my executive producer for 10 years is a man So I have been surrounded by a lot of men”

“I think that is changing, I know that is changing just by looking at some of the faces that are appearing more and more on our channel,” she added
