A new CNN program that has been the subject of speculation for more than a year is finally ready to be announced. TVNewser reports that the program is being built around Bill Weir.
CNN hired the former ABC News “Nightline” anchor more than a year ago, but his rumored new program never appeared.
Now the network is preparing to take the wraps off the details of Weir’s new show, to be called “The Wonder List with Bill Weir.”
Weir writes: “It’s the most exciting project I’ve ever had.” Weir has done some fill-in anchoring at CNN since he arrived, but for the past four months he has been traveling for the new show, to six continents.
The new program already has a Twitter account, but hasn’t yet tweeted. CNN is expected to announce more about the new show today, TVNewser reports.
