Katie Couric To Replace Piers Morgan On CNN?
There’s a big shake up happening at CNN. Rumors began yesterday that CNN going to replace host Piers Morgan with daytime talk show host Katie Couric.
According to sources, CNN president Jeff Zucker is actively looking for a replacement for Piers. While Zucker hasn’t addressed the rumors yet, people close to him say he wants Couric to take over his 9 p.m. slot and move Morgan to a later 10 p.m. time slot.
While Zucker loves Couric, sources say he’s looking at other people beside her to take over Piers’ time slot. Couric reportedly really wants the position according to the New York Post, and as for her daytime talk show, The Hollywood Reporter says the show is on the verge of cancellation. They say the decision on whether Katie gets renewed for a third season will be made later this month.
