- CNN Chief Chris Licht has appreached CBS Mornings co-host Gayle King to do a weekly interview show on his struggling network.
According to Puck News, “Licht recently approached King, who current hosts CBS Mornings, to pitch her on his idea for her role at CNN. Licht, points out the report, is the one who brought King to the CBS morning show last decade, when he was an executive producer. The pair have remained close since.”
- “CNN This Morning, the only show Licht has established during his brief tenure, is a ratings bomb and earlier this month experienced its least-viewed week since launch, averaging just over 330,000 viewers – a pitiful figure compared to MSNBC’s Morning Joe, and Fox & Friends,” reports The Daily Mail.
