CNN is to become the first national cable television news network to accept commercials for distilled spirits, by running a spot for Grey Goose vodka.
The spot was to have run last night during “News Night With Aaron Brown,” but did not appear.
The policy change also affects a CNN sibling, CNN Headline News, although that network has no liquor marketers scheduled to run commercials yet.
If you have ever watched Aaron Brown for more than thirty seconds, you have probably reached for a drink. Good product placement.
