CNN to Move Chris Cuomo to Primetime

CNN’s New Day morning news co-anchor Chris Cuomo will test the primetime waters with CNN's launch of the Cuomo Prime Time series later this spring, CNN announced Wednesday. 

The series, which will feature Cuomo’s one-on-one interviews with politicians and newsmakers as well as analysis of the news of the day and breaking news, will air at 9 pm and go head-to head with cable news network ratings powerhouses in Fox News Channel’s Hannity and MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show

CNN’s John Berman will replace Cuomo as co-anchor of New Day alongside Alisyn Camerota, said the network.

Cuomo Prime Time will be sandwiched between AC360, hosted by Anderson Cooper, and CNN Tonight -- hosted by Don Lemon – as part of CNN’s primetime news lineup.
