Soledad O’Brien could return to her “Morning” glory.
Sources tell The New York Post that the CNN correspondent may be back at her old gig in the anchor on CNN’s “American Morning.” O’Brien is rumored to be replacing her replacement Kiran Chetry, who was recently let go, and could be appearing in the 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. hours with an ensemble cast as early as next month.
O’Brien anchored the CNN morning show from 2003 to 2007 with Miles O’Brien, and according to The Post, is a “favorite” of CNN Worldwide President Jim Walton.
Former MSNBC host Ashley Banfield is mentioned as a possible candidate to fill the 5 a.m. – 7 a.m. slot.
CNN has not commented on the report at this time.
