The O'Briens are leaving American Morning
TV Week is reporting that CNN will make an official annoucement today about the fate of their morning show American Morning and the show's anchors, Miles O'Brien and Soledad O'Brien (from now on referred to as "The O'Briens.")
The two anchors are leaving the CNN program (ratings are down) and they are expected to be replaced by John Roberts and Kiran Chetry. If you're not sure about that name, Kiran Chetry is a woman who used to be on FOX News Channel's Fox & Friends. John Roberts came over to CNN last year and is, of course, a man.
No one's sure what will happen to The O'Briens, though they will probably stick with CNN, Soledad in a new deal (hey, they should bring back The Site, with that computerized cafe guy!) and Miles going back to his NASA/space beat and features. This isn't one of my regular viewing experiences (I channel surf around ABC, CBS, and NBC early in the morning), but I might check in to see if they're going to radically change things to compete with MSNBC's Don Imus and Fox & Friends.
