After almost three years as co-host of CNN’s morning news show New Day, Michaela Pereira is moving on to start her own new day of sorts, at CNN’s sister network Headline News (HLN). The move will take Pereira back home tp Los Angeles, where she will host a three-hour morning news program. From The Los Angeles Times:
Co-host Michaela Pereira announced Tuesday that she will leave the morning program at the end of April to become an anchor at CNN’s sister channel HLN later this year.
Pereira will have her own three-hour daytime news show, which does not yet have a title or launch date. But CNN Executive Vice President Ken Jautz told the Los Angeles Times the format will be similar in style and tone to HLN’s daily program “Morning Express With Robin Meade.”
The new assignment is a homecoming for Pereira, who was an anchor for nine years on the “KTLA Morning News” in Los Angeles before she joined CNN in June 2013. Her HLN program will originate from CNN’s Hollywood studios on Sunset Boulevard.
Pereira, 45, said she sought the move so she could get back to the life she “put on hold” a few years ago to work out of CNN’s New York studios.
As yet, CNN hasn’t named a replacement for Pereira, whose post will be filled with a rotation of CNN anchors for the time being.
