Don Lemon, Kaitlan Collins, Poppy Harlow to Lead CNN Morning Show in Shake Up
Brian Steinberg Senior TV Editor CNN is hoping to wake up its morning schedule. The Warner Bros. Discovery-backed news outlet unveiled a new lineup for its morning block, installing Don Lemon, Kaitlan Collins and Poppy Harlow in place of the current hosts John Berman and Brianna Keilar. Chris Licht, CNN’s chairman and chief executive, has had some of his greatest success in morning news, having launched MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and retooled the program once known as “CBS This Morning.” The new program, retitled and with a new set, is expected to debut later this year. Lemon, who has notably held forth for CNN in primetime for the past several years, will end his run there, giving CNN a second slot to fill in the most-watched part of its schedule, Berman and Keilar are expected to find other assignments that will be announced at a later date.
