CNN”s new morning show finally has a name and a debut date. New Day will premiere June 10, the news network announced today. Hosted by Chris Cuomo, Kate Bolduan and Michaela Pereira, the show that Jeff Zucker hopes to make the flagship of his CNN reign will air from 6-9 AM weekdays and broadcast out of the CNN studios in New York.
Revitalizing the morning show slot has been a top priority for Zucker since the former Today producer took over at the ratings-challenged network in late January. Putting this piece in place has taken a few months: Former 20/20 co-host Cuomo made the long-rumored jump from ABC to CNN just days after Zucker officially stepped into his role as president of CNN Worldwide. Current morning show host Soladad O’Brien was shown the AM door in late February to become a documentary producer for CNN. Though the network’s primetime Out Front host Erin Burnett was rumored to be Cuomo’s co-host, CNN congressional correspondent Bolduan and former KTLA morning news anchor Pereira were named to the then still unnamed show in late March. Matt Frucci is executive producer and Jim Murphy will serve as senior producer.
