CNN has announced another series of program and anchor changes.
The move follows changes announced in January 2021.
Starting with its signature morning newscast “New Day,” Alisyn Camerota will move off the anchor desk to an afternoon timeslot, a move that was first reported by Dylan Byers last week.
She will be replaced alongside John Berman on “New Day” by Brianna Keilar, a change also first reported by Byers.
“New Day” runs from 6 to 9 a.m. eastern.
Ana Cabrera is being moved from weekends to an anchor of “CNN Newsroom” from 1 to 2 p.m. eastern starting in April, when most of the changes are expected to take place.
Cabrera will replace Brooke Baldwin, who will leave the network in April.
Camerota will move to 2 to 4 p.m. alongside Victor Blackwell, who is currently the weekend anchor of “New Day.”
Meanwhile, Boris Sanchez will take Blackwell’s place alongside Christi Paul after previously announcing he’d be leaving the White House beat.
Fellow former White House correspondent Jim Acosta will anchor “CNN Newsroom” Saturdays and Sundays from 3 to 6 p.m.
