CNN has tapped Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan to host a new morning show slated to premiere in the spring.
In addition, Michaela Pereira of KTLA Morning News in Los Angeles has joined the cable network as the New York-based program's news anchor. Jim Murphy boards as senior executive producer and Matt Frucci as exec producer.
"I've been looking forward to this announcement since I first joined CNN," said Jeff Zucker, president of CNN Worldwide, in a statement Thursday. "Chris, Kate and Michaela are a dynamic team that will give our viewers in America a new way to start their day. We were floored with excitement when we saw Chris and Kate together on screen, and by adding Michaela to the mix we feel we have something very special. We believe there is an opening to do news in the morning with a fresh, new voice."
