CNN's 3-hour ensemble newscast New Day anchored by Chris Cuomo, Alisyn Camerota and Michaela Pereira keeps a focus on hard news, breaking stories and newsmaker interviews: a basic news program formula, but one that is working for CNN. The show celebrated its two-year anniversary last month by posting double-digit viewership increases. So, what goes into producing New Day everyday?
It's official: Chris Cuomo's partner on the much-reported CNN morning show will be congressional correspondent Kate Bolduan (rumor has it that Erin Burnett was considered but didn't want the early-bird gig). This marks CNN's first foray since the change in leadership into what Jeff Zucker is better at than anybody else: morning television.
