Piers Morgan May Move To Later Time Slot On CNN: Report

12/11/2012 10:12 am ET

Piers Morgan could be moving to a later time slot on CNN, according to a new report from the New York Post.

The change could be part of a bigger shakeup at the network, as incoming president Jeff Zucker attempts to revamp CNN's primetime programming. One executive familiar with the situation told the paper that Morgan, whose show currently airs at 9 p.m., could be moved to 10 p.m. or even later. The source was confident, however, that CNN will keep Morgan.

"[Piers will] be the kind of person Zucker will want to keep," the executive said. "They are not interested in doing a total cleaning of house."

The network is also reportedly looking to end repeats of "Anderson 360" at 10 p.m. The first broadcast airs at 8 p.m. "As for Anderson Cooper, I’d expect he’d no longer keep the 8 p.m. slot and the 10 p.m. slot, and Piers Morgan would be moved out of 9 p.m.," the executive said.
