Despite previous reports that Burnett is set to co-host a CNN morning show with new hire Chris Cuomo, the blog reports that her move to the morning hours is “dead in the water” and that CNN chief Jeff Zucker is going in “a different direction” in finding a co-host for recent ABC poach Cuomo.
The blog’s sources did not say who Zucker was considering for the gig now that Burnett is allegedly no longer in the running.
UPDATE: A source tells Mediaite that the matter is unresolved and that Burnett is still in the running but far from a sure thing as many initially believed.
