For the first time since introducing a rotating cast of hosts, CNN’s “Reliable Sources” will be fronted by a woman.
Joanne Lipman, former managing editor of the The Wall Street Journal and former editor-in-chief of Conde Nast Portfolio will host Sunday’s show.
Lipman’s former WSJ colleague Walt Mossberg will be a guest, along with former ABC, BBC, MSNBC and CNBC anchor Melinda Wittstock, founder and CEO of Verifeed. They’ll discuss how crowd-sourced information and video help news organizations. Also on tap: a look at the news coverage from a deadly week in Egypt, and a discussion about next week’s launch of Al Jazeera America.
Howard Kurtz hosted his final “Reliable Sources” June 31. (He joined Fox News the next day.) Since then, hosts have included the Daily Beast’s John Avlon, NPR’s David Folkenflik, former CNN correspondent Frank Sesno, Politico’s Patrick Gavin, and the New York Times‘ Brian Stelter.
