Another morning show is joining the crowd: CNN has just announced a new morning news program co-hosted by Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan. Michaela Pereira will be the program’s news anchor, joining CNN after nine years as host of KTLA Morning News in Los Angeles. “I’ve been looking forward to this announcement since I first joined CNN,” said president of CNN Worldwide Jeff Zucker in a release. “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.”
Cuomo joined CNN in January from ABC, where he was previously a co-anchor on 20/20 and a news anchor on Good Morning America. Bolduan joined CNN in 2007, and currently is the co-anchor of The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer.
The new show will premiere this spring.
