As rumors swirl about a possible on-air change for a long-running NBC News program, a recent sighting of the show’s host at CNN has triggered speculation that he may be close to jumping networks.
Speculation has been ongoing that “Meet the Press” host David Gregory is on his way out amid ratings struggles, and now the New York Post’s Page Six reports that he was seen meeting at CNN last week.
NBC is likely to wait until after the midterm elections to make changes to the Sunday morning show, the story notes. But Gregory’s meeting at CNN might signal he’s ready to make a move himself, the piece adds.
“A move to CNN would make sense, sources told Page Six, since the anchor enjoyed close ties with former NBC honcho Jeff Zucker before the exec took over at CNN Worldwide last year,” the story says.
According to the report, CNN is testing for a prime-time pilot that could be a fit for Gregory.
NBC had no comment, and CNN didn’t respond to a request for comment, the Post adds.
