Sources tell FTVLive that CNN Boss Jeff Zucker is â€œactively looking for a replacement for Piers Morgan.I will personally chip in for his ticket home.
Morgan signed a one year extension to his contract and as time winds down, Zucker is looking for someone to takeover his time slot.
Word is that Zucker really wants Katie Couric in that slot. Couric should be available soon as many expect this is the last year her talk show â€œKatieâ€ will be on the air.
But, CNN sources tell FTVLive that Zucker is not putting all his eggs in the Couric basket. â€œHeâ€™s looking at other people besides Katie,â€ says our source.
Zucker might have learned a lesson when he planned on putting Erin Burnett on CNNâ€™s new morning show. It blew up in his face, when Burnett balked at going to mornings.
