Licht to Replace Zucker and Move CNN to Center


Over the weekend news broke that Chris Licht will replace Jeff Zucker as the new president of CNN. As part of the move, Licht is expected to dial back the left leaning perspective of CNN’s prime time line-up and lean heavily on the network’s news credibility.

Licht has two connections to former Connecticut TV news personalities. He was the original executive producer of Morning Joe on MSNBC, hosted by Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski(WFSB/WTIC) and he was executive producer of CBS This Morning, co-hosted by Gayle King(WFSB).
