Today was Kate Bolduan’s final “New Day” before maternity leave.
Bolduan, seen above with senior EP Jim Murphy and most of the CNN “New Day” staff, as well as co-anchors Chris Cuomo and Michaela Pereira off to the left, was given a surprise baby shower yesterday.
Various anchors will be filling in over the next few months. Next week Brooke Baldwin and Brianna Keilar will fill in. Pereira is off as well.
Bolduan, who is having a girl, is part of a first-time tvnewser baby boom: “Today” show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie gave birth to a baby girl Aug. 14. and Fox News anchor Jenna Lee gave birth to a baby boy Sept. 3.
