The story was first reported by The Wrap, which is also reporting that Javi Morgado will be the new executive producer of “New Day.” Morgado replaces Matt Frucci, who was a victim of CNN’s recent layoffs. Bolduan becomes a co-anchor of the 11am show “@ThisHour” with John Berman on Jan. 26, replacing Michaela Pereira who is also joining “New Day” as a co-anchor.
