Former CNBC anchor Dylan Ratigan is probably headed to ABC News. When? We don’t know.
Earlier, “Ratigan” confirmed the move on Twitter: “yes, going to ABC stay tuned,” he said.
But CNBC regular Jon Najarian says the “dylanratigan” account on Twitter is fake.
Reached for comment, ABC rep Jeffrey Schneider wouldn’t discuss the supposed deal, probably because he can’t: Ratigan reportedly has a six-month noncompete clause with CNBC.
Schneider did tell us the same thing he told the AP last week: “We think the world of Dylan Ratigan.”
“Ratigan has a six-month non-compete clause in his contract, according to sources, so he will not be going anywhere fast unless CNBC waives the clause,” B&C reported yesterday. “rumours of a perch at ABC News and Good Morning America were shot down by sources at ABC.”
