CNN is tweaking its programming lineup, with CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker announcing this week that Brianna Keilar, CNN’s senior Washington correspondent, will be anchoring the 1 p.m. ET hour starting in the fall.
TVNewser reports that Keilar will take over for Wolf Blitzer, who will continue to anchor “The Situation Room” weekdays from 5-7 p.m. ET.
The name of the new show and other details about it have not been announced. Keilar’s show will reportedly premiere in the fall after she returns from maternity leave.
“In addition to serving as the network’s senior Washington correspondent, Keilar has been the primary fill-in anchor for ‘The Situation Room’ and was the lead reporter covering 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic field in 2016,” TVNewser reports. “Previously, she served as CNN’s senior White House correspondent covering the Barack Obama administration.”
