John King will be the next King to depart CNN, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
Since King took over Lou Dobbs’ 7 p.m. time slot, the period has shed more than half its audience, the story says. CNN executives also feel that his poor performance fed into Campbell Brown’s 8 p.m. show, which partly lead to her departure. One possibility for his replacement is Wolf Blitzer, the story says.
A CNN representative told the Post that John King’s departure isn’t true.
