Anderson Cooper Daytime Talk Show Gets Makeover

Anderson Cooper's daytime talk show will undergo a series of changes, Broadcasting & Cable reported on Tuesday.

The program's name will change from "Anderson" to "Anderson Live."

The new name is the latest in a series of changes to hit the season-old production. Previous reports indicated that the show will air live instead of being taped ahead of time, include a guest co-host daily, and move to a new studio, thereby allowing the CNN host to cover live events as they unfold.

Broadcasting & Cable reported that the new program will emulate "Live! With Kelly," the show that Cooper guest-hosted a number of times to great reviews. There is still a possibility that Cooper may name a permanent guest host for his show.

Cooper's show was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award in the Outstanding Talk Show/Informative Program category earlier this year. Cooper's competition will heat up as the production embarks on its second season, as Katie Couric's new daytime talk show premieres in September.
