Piers Morgan Dumped by the Communist News Network?Submitted by Jawa86 on Wed, 10/02/2013 - 17:39
An Internet site that reports on issues that emanate from within America’s news rooms said CNN’s Piers Morgan is on the out.
But it’s not clear whether he will sever ties with CNN completely — or simply with his coveted prime time slot.
FTVLive reported that sources say CNN head Jeff Zucker is “actively looking for a replacement for Piers Morgan.” Mr. Morgan in 2012 signed only a one-year contract extension, and that’s about to wrap, the site reported.
Mr. Zucker would like to replace him with Katie Couric, FTVLive reported. But he’s not counting on her, keeping an open mind about other replacement hosts, too, the sources said.
“He’s looking at other people besides Katie,” one said, to FTVLive.
