CNN Tweaks Daytime Lineup, Expanding Duties for Michaela Pereira, John Berman

Ashleigh Banfield's program moves to noon

CNN said it would expand duties for two of its early-morning hosts, John Berman and Michaela Pereira, as part of a rejiggering of its daytime lineup

Starting Monday, February 10, the duo will host an 11 a.m. program, a move that will send the current occupant of that slot, Ashleigh Banfield, to noon. Berman and Pereira will continue their other duties on the Time Warner-owned cable-news network, continuing to hold forth on “Early Start” at 5 a.m. and New Day at 6 a.m., respectively

Wolf Blitzer will continue to anchor the 1 p.m. hour, “Wolf,” with a focus on politics, breaking news and international news.  He will also continue to anchor “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer” weekdays from 5 – 6:30 p.m. Carol Costello  will continue to anchor 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.  and Brooke Baldwin will continue to anchor 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Suzanne Malveaux and Michael Holmes, who had been anchoring the noon hour, are being given new assignments. Malveaux, a CNN veteran, will become CNN”s  national correspondent covering politics, national news, and international current events, relocating to Washington. D.C.  Holmes will return full-time to CNN International and continue to anchor “International Desk,” which airs weekdays at 10 a.m.

The moves come as MSNBC has begun to staff up for a daytime show featuring the unproven but popular Ronan Farrow, the son of Mia Farrow who has drawn much attention despite his inexperience in the field.
