The official word: CNN announced today that its new morning show will be called “New Day.” Hosted by Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan, with Michaela Pereira as news anchor, the program will launch Monday, June 10th. It will broadcast live from CNN’s studios in New York City and air weekdays from 6-9 am ET. As was previously announced, Jim Murphy is the senior executive producer and Matt Frucci is the executive producer of “New Day.” CNN’s John Berman and Zoraida Sambolin will continue to anchor “Early Start” from 5-6 am ET.
Since joining CNN a few months ago, Cuomo has helped lead coverage on all major news stories, including the Boston attacks, papal conclave, State of the Union address and Christopher Dorner pursuit. The award-winning anchor and correspondent came from ABC News where he anchored “20/20” and “Good Morning America.”
Bolduan most recently co-anchored “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” contributed to America’s Choice 2012 and served as CNN’s congressional correspondent covering the activities of the U.S. House and Senate. As a member of the Capitol Hill unit, Bolduan reported on the negotiations to increase the federal debt limit and the super committee deliberations.
Pereira is the co-host of “KTLA Morning News,” the number one morning program in Los Angeles for the last nine years. During this time, the program has won ten Emmy Awards for “Best Regularly Scheduled Daily News” and three for KTLA’s live coverage of the Rose Parade.
