Called “Wake up Call,” the show will run from 5-6 AM ET Monday-Friday starting June 27. CNN has committed to the program through September 23, 2011.

Velshi will continue to co-host “American Morning,” which begins immediately following “Wake Up Call.” While anchoring “Wake Up Call” and “American Morning,” Velshi’s afternoon timeslot will continue to be hosted by fill-in anchors.
