Soledad O’Brien’s new morning show on CNN – set to launch next month – is still very much in flux, the New York Post reports.
According to this story published Thursday in the Post, issues such as the format, co-hosts and even the show’s title are still uncertain.
“The new anchors will show up on air the first week of January, but don’t expect a big launch,” according to an unnamed source in the story. “There seems to be some internal dissent about how to handle the transition.”
Among other things: A plan to have O’Brien joined on-set by the two female co-anchors that precede her show in early weekday mornings – Ashleigh Banfield and Zoraida Sambolin – for roundtable discussions has been tabled, at least temporarily, the story said. “[O’Brien] is now set on hosting alone,” the story said.
O’Brien’s show – tentatively titled “Morning Buzz” – will be seen at 7-9 a.m. (6-8c) weekdays on CNN. But even the title is now subject to change before the show’s premiere, the story said.
A CNN spokesperson is quoted in the story as saying there is no premiere date yet for the new show.
