New CNN President Chris Licht is warning employees Stelter isn’t the end.
According to a report from The Daily Wire, CNN will continue to clean house of hyper-partisan personalities and failing shows. A new report claims that morning show New Day could be next.
“I want to acknowledge that this is a time of significant change, and I know that many of you are unsettled,” Licht reportedly told staffers on an editorial staff call Friday. “There will be more changes, and you might not understand it or like it.”
From The Daily Wire:
RadarOnline.com reported that “New Day,” the show started by Licht’s predecessor, Jeff Zucker, is circling the drain. It will be replaced by a roundtable-type program patterned after MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” possibly hosted by Jake Tapper, according to RadarOnline. Licht has reportedly tried to hire “Morning Joe” husband-wife hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski away from the rival liberal cable news network.
“Chris comes from the same breeding ground as Zucker: morning television,” a CNN insider told RadarOnline. “He wants to establish a popular morning show that sets the agenda for the network each day. He doesn’t want to change anchors frequently. He wants strength and stability — and believes it all starts in the all-important morning timeslot.”
