Lineup Changes Continue for CNN, With a New Weekday Anchor Added TVWeek
CNN has unveiled the latest in a series of lineup adjustments as it scrambles to try to reverse its recent ratings woes.
Ken Jautz, executive vice president of CNN/U.S., announced today that CNN White House reporter Suzanne Malveaux will leave that beat to anchor "CNN Newsroom."
“Suzanne is a welcome addition to the CNN Newsroom lineup, adding a depth of experience as well as fresh perspective to our daytime coverage,” Jautz said in a statement. “We are very pleased to expand Suzanne’s role so that we can showcase her political expertise as well as her broader strengths as a journalist.”
Malveaux will begin "CNN Newsroom" anchor duties Jan. 31. The show will air live from Atlanta each weekday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. ET. Also included in the broadcast will be Kyra Phillips, Ali Velshi and Brooke Baldwin.
Malveaux said of her new role, “I’m looking forward to this new chapter, bringing news and stories that impact viewers in and outside the Beltway.”
