After months of musical chairs, Cable News Network's morning star, Paula Zahn, should have
some permanent co-anchor company when she moves into her new studio this month.
Her sidekick is likely to be Bill Hemmer, who would have to relocate from
Atlanta to New York.
CNN chairman Walter Isaacson recently said he was giving American
Morning new executive producer, Wil Surrratt, a few weeks to cast the show.
The deadline is drawing close as American Morning prepares to move into its
new $15 million streetside Manhattan studio.
Jack Cafferty, Zahn's original partner, should make the move over, although
his role has diminished as of late. Since its debut last September, American
Morning's ratings have improved, but it still trails its morning cable
rival, Fox & Friends.
