In the latest installment of the media version of musical chairs, the NY Post is reporting that CNN’s new president, Jeff Zucker is looking to poach MSNBC’s Tamron Hall as a part of his network revamp.
The 42-year-old news anchor currently hosts “NewsNation” from 2-3pm ET on MSNBC.
“She was one of Jeff’s bright young things at NBC when he was at the network,” said a source.
Hall, who regularly fills in on the “Today” show, is reportedly being considered to co-host CNN’s new morning show opposite Chris Cuomo. It was announced that former “20/20” anchor Cuomo was leaving ABC to join CNN earlier this year.
Previous reports claimed that CNN’s Erin Burnett was the front-runner for the spot, however the Post claims that Burnett is not interested in giving up her prime-time show for a morning schedule.
Other names being tossed around for the new morning show also include CNN’s Suzanne Malveaux and Brooke Baldwin.
CNN has not commented on the story.
