Changes to CNN's American Morning


CNN announced that the O'Brien duo, Soledad and Miles have been reassigned from their anchoring duties on American Morning effective next Monday. The pair is being replaced by Kiran Chetry, and John Roberts.

Lagging ratings appear to be the main reson for the change.

As far as the new talent, a press release quotes CNN President Joe Klien as saying:

“I’ve admired John’s journalistic chops since we worked together at CBS more than a decade ago, and it’s not surprising that he’s now recognized as one of the premier broadcasters in the business... As for Kiran, we’ve watched her light up the screen for years, and we are thrilled that she was able to join our team. She’s a breath of fresh air and a delight to work with, and it’s no wonder she’s already been embraced by CNN viewers.”

Both Soledad and Miles will work in different capacities for CNN. Soledad will now anchor and report for CNN's Special Investigations Unit, and Miles will be the chief technology and environment correspondent.

Hey..I am a big fan of CNN..hate FOX News (but not WTVT;) until they got all FOXtied latley) Dont like the new idiots on CNN-AM...The Obrien's were excellent in my eyes, but to replace anchors to low ratings, how about blaming the president (John Klein not Bush this time) every hour the same stories repeated for 3 long gruling hours...After about hearing the storing about 3times in 1hour, the viewer gets a little bored. The only good thing I see about CNN-American Morning now are the Graphics and set thats it...
