The rumor mill about who will join CNN's prime-time lineup keeps churning. After weeks of speculation that former New York governor Eliot Spitzer may sign with the struggling network, now comes a report from the New York Post that CNN is eyeing British journalist and reality show panelist Piers Morgan for a slot:
Morgan gained US notoriety as a winner of "Celebrity Apprentice." Sources tell The Post's Claire Atkinson that Morgan is now discussing a possible panel show at CNN, which has been battered by plunging ratings and is searching for a new identity.
It's not clear what the panel show would look like, but Morgan is no novice in the genre, being a judge on both "Britain's Got Talent" and "America's Got Talent." He is also the host of his own interview show, "Piers Morgan's Life Stories," in the UK, and edited the Daily Mirror tabloid for nine years.
