CNN Reviving a Show That’s Been Off the Air for Almost a Decade

Jan 31, 2014  •  Post A Comment

CNN is resurrecting a show from almost a decade ago. TVNewser reports that the cable news channel will bring back “Inside Politics,” which ended a 20-year run on CNN in 2005.

The show will return with John King as its anchor, the story reports. “Inside Politics” is the second show that CNN has recently revived, following its revamp of “Crossfire,” which was also canceled in 2005.

"Inside Politics" will debut Sunday at 8:30 a.m. ET, and will feature King with a rotating panel of political reporters. “Inside Politics” ended its run in 2005 when host Judy Woodruff opted not to renew her contract.

“I’m honored to be part of bringing ‘Inside Politics’ back to CNN, with a focus on ahead-of-the-curve political reporting,” King said in a statement. “It’s a fascinating time in American politics, in Washington and across the country, and we have a remarkable group of journalists committed to sharing their reporting and their insights each week.”

  1. I hope I’m wrong! Mark my words, this will be an arm of the Hillary presidential campaign!

  2. I doubt it highly because CNN can ill afford appearing too much one way or the other politically speaking. It would not be in the network’s best interest.
    My feeling is that the way that candidates are covered by news outlets is changing because of “exclusivities.” But nah, CNN will be far from a “Just ‘Hillary’ 24 Hours on CNN.” Maybe if she visits prisons….
