King To Take Over CNN’s “Late Edition”

From the New York Times:

    The anticipated selection of David Gregory to be the new moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press” may not be the only significant change in the lineup of Sunday morning political discussion shows.

    CNN is close to making a change of its own with its Sunday program “Late Edition,” installing John King, its chief national correspondent and longtime White House correspondent, in the host role that has been filled for 10 years by Wolf Blitzer.

    CNN executives would not comment on the decision but they did not deny that the Sunday move to Mr. King had been discussed. At the same time, Mr. Blitzer is close to signing an extension of his CNN contract that would continue his role as the network’s chief anchor for breaking news and political coverage, an executive who has been briefed on the plans said.
