CNN is scrambling to get Soledad O’Brien’s new morning show ready to air, with the program possibly to debut without a name, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
The show is tentatively called "Morning Buzz," and is slated to debut in January 2012. O’Brien was slated to host in a roundtable format, but now she wants to anchor alone, the story adds.
O’Brien is scheduled to host from 7-9 a.m., with 5-7 a.m. anchors Ashleigh Banfield and Zoraida Sambolin joining her later for the roundtable discussions, the piece notes.
A representative for CNN said the show doesn’t have a debut date, although both new morning programs are expected to start in January, the story reports. The rep added that the two shows had been anticipated as separate programs, the piece adds.
