CNN Reportedly Narrowing In On Morning Show Co-Host

CNN chief Jeff Zucker is reportedly narrowing in a co-host for the network's new morning show.

Zucker moved "Starting Point" host Soledad O'Brien off CNN's morning show and hired Chris Cuomo to co-host the program. Rumors swirled that Zucker was trying to move Erin Burnett from her primetime show to anchor alongside Cuomo. Before joining CNN, Burnett was a regular morning presence on CNBC and MSNBC.

Zucker had Burnett and Cuomo co-host the network's coverage of the Pope Benedict's last day. The talks seemed to derail some time after, and reports surfaced that Zucker was looking at other people for the role.

TVNewser reported on Thursday that Zucker was narrowing in on CNN's congressional correspondent Kate Bolduan. The CNN chief is also reportedly considering HLN host Christi Paul.

Zucker has been revamping the network since he took over as CNN's president in late January. He is reportedly interested in bringing a late night comedy show to the network. Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin allegedly shot a pilot for CNN on Tuesday.
