Dave Briggs is joining CNN to co-host a revamped Early Start with (birthday girl) Christine Romans. The new pairing, part of a larger CNN dayside overhaul, begins Feb. 23.
Other changes: beginning next week, the 9-11 a.m. ET hours of CNN Newsroom, will be anchored by John Berman and Poppy Harlow, who will be moving off weekends. The 2-hour block is currently anchored by Carol Costello who announced yesterday she is moving to the West Coast where she will anchor a new show for HLN.
Back at CNN, at 11 a.m., At This Hour will be solo anchored by Kate Bolduan. The rest of the CNN schedule remains as is with John King picking up at Noon with Inside Politics, followed by Wolf at 1 p.m, and then the 2-hour CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin from 2-4 p.m.
From 2008-2012 Briggs co-hosted Fox & Friends Weekend alongside his soon-to-be CNN colleague Alisyn Camerota.
