Jake Tapper To Host CNN Primetime Show Through Midterms, Alisyn Camerota And Laura Coates To Anchor Nightly Block – Deadline

CNN is filling in some of the gaps in its nightly schedule, at least through the midterms, with Jake Tapper hosting CNN Tonight at 9 PM ET through the midterms, and Alisyn Camerota and Laura Coates sharing anchor duties in the 10 PM-midnight block.

The lineup is scheduled to run Oct. 10 to Nov. 8.

The changes are not permanent, at least not yet. The network has had big holes to fill in its nightly and late night lineup, with the firing of Chris Cuomo late last year and Don Lemon’s pending departure for the morning hours.

Tapper, chief Washington correspondent and anchor of The Lead and State of the Union, will host CNN Newsroom from Washington. Camerota is anchor of CNN Newsroom and Coates, CNN legal analyst, has guest hosted CNN Tonight.

During this period, John Berman and Brianna Keilar will fill in for Tapper on The Lead, which will slim down to one hour at 4 PM ET. Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer will expand to two hours, starting at 5 PM ET. Berman and Keilar have anchored CNN’s morning show New Day, but that show is being overhauled, with Lemon, Poppy Harlow and Kaitlan Collins as the new anchors of the retitled program.

More to come.
