CNN announced a series of changes to its dayside lineup on Friday.

John Berman and Michaela Pereira will co-host CNN’s 11 AM hour beginning in February, the network said.

Berman, who has been the lead host of "Early Start" following Zoraida Sambolin's departure, will continue to host the program along with his new co-host Christine Romans.

Michaela Pereira will continue on "New Day" alongside co-anchors Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan. Ashleigh Banfield's "Legal View" will move from the 11 AM slot to the 12 PM slot to make room for Berman and Pereira, yet another shakeup following similar morning programming changes in 2012.

CNN has announced a series of rescheduling in recent months following chief Jeff Zucker's new "broad" vision for the network. Zucker warned viewers in December that they should expect such changes as part of an initiative toward bringing more "attitude" to CNN, including the addition of more shows and a cut in newscasts.

The new lineup will look like this, starting February 10:

9 – 11 AM: Carol Costello
11 a.m. – 12 PM: John Berman and Michaela Pereira
12 – 1 PM: Ashleigh Banfield
1 – 2 PM: Wolf Blitzer
2 – 4 PM: Brooke Baldwin
