Piers Morgan's 9 p.m. show on CNN is ending, the host told the New York Times' David Carr.
Looks like the Jeff Zucker regime at CNN is going to be quite a bit different from predecessor Jim Walton's tenure. Managing editor and evp Mark Whitaker is out at the Turner news network, as are the venerable odd couple of TV punditry, Mary Matalin and James Carville.
CNN announced today that Jim Walton, president of CNN Worldwide, will step down at the end of 2012, until which time he will continue in his current role. The decision is characterized by the network as Walton's own, made with "the support and respect of Turner Broadcasting CEO Phil Kent," who will lead the search for Walton's replacement.
