NEW YORK — Veteran CNN correspondent Candy Crowley will be host of the network’s Sunday morning political talk show.

Crowley replaces John King, who is leaving the show he started after one year. King has a new weekday evening show that’s expected to debut on CNN soon. Her appointment was announced on the air Sunday.

The hour-long show airs at 9 a.m. ET, and is repeated with updates three hours later. Crowley has been with CNN since 1987. She has covered all but one of the national political conventions since the nomination of Jimmy Carter in 1976.

She’ll be the only woman among the Sunday morning public affairs hosts, joining NBC’s David Gregory, CBS’ Bob Schieffer and Fox’s Chris Wallace. ABC is in the process of finding a replacement for George Stephanopoulos, who has taken over at ‘Good Morning America.’
