The New York Post's Page Six has shown up late to the party, but now they're here.
Page Six reports that Bill Weir looks set to be the replacement for CNN’s prime-time 9 p.m. slot, insiders said.
Weir, a former “Nightline” co-anchor, joined the network in November 2013 as an anchor and “chief innovation correspondent.”
CNN issued a press release at the time stating Weir “will work with producers to develop original programming across the schedule.”
While a date for Piers Morgan’s final 9 p.m. show has not been announced, he’ll be staying with the network to do big-name interviews.
A rep for CNN, Barbara Levin, who isn’t known for her grasp of the truth, said, “No news to share, feel free to speculate.”
