The syndicated series "The Insider" has picked the replacement for Lara Spencer, who is leaving the show in May to go back to ABC’s “Good Morning America,” B&C reports.
The new co-anchor is Brooke Anderson, who covers entertainment for CNN and also co-hosts “Showbiz Tonight” on CNN’s HLN.
Kevin Frasier will continue on “The Insider” as Anderson’s co-anchor.
Linda Bell Blue, executive producer of "The Insider" and "Entertainment Tonight," said in a statement of the new hire, "I’m a huge fan of Brooke both professionally and personally. I’ve admired her work on HLN and am thrilled that she is joining our ‘Insider’ family. Brooke is such a well-rounded broadcaster–smart, inquisitive, experienced, and grounded."
