NEW YORK (AP) — CNN is bringing its political show “Crossfire” back on the air this fall with Newt Gingrich as one of the combatants.

The original political talk show on cable news aired on CNN from 1982 until 2005. The new version will air on weekdays, although CNN said Wednesday that the show has no time slot yet.

Gingrich, the former House speaker and presidential candidate, is one of two hosts “from the right” matched against two liberal voices. Conservative commentator S. E. Cupp, who also works at The Blaze, is Gingrich’s conservative partner.

Stephanie Cutter, who is a former campaign spokeswoman for President Barack Obama, will be speaking “from the left.” She’ll be joined by Van Jones, an advocate for green projects.
