News to Use: CNN changes morning lineup, sans Soledad O'Brien.
According to The Daily Beast, Soledad O'Brien will no longer have a morning show on CNN. Jeff Zucker, the new president of CNN is making major changes including removing O'Brien from the morning spot due to low ratings. There is no word yet on what this means for the future of O'Brien with CNN.
The Daily Beast Excerpt:
"Zucker launched his makeover Tuesday by announcing the imminent arrival of ABC News anchor Chris Cuomo to take over the troubled 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. slot currently occupied by Soledad O’Brien. According to network sources, Cuomo, who was said to be unhappy at ABC’s 20/20 since being passed over in 2009 for the top job at Good Morning America, will be joined in the morning by the current anchor of CNN’s Erin Burnett OutFront, leaving a hole for Zucker to fill at 7 p.m."
