In the weeks following, CNN has enlisted a slew of familiar faces to sub in during the 9 p.m. ET hour. Don Lemon, Jake Tapper, Michael Smerconish and Bill Weir will all fill the timeslot until CNN finds a permanent replacement for Morgan.
Weir, who's rumored to be a front-runner for the gig, will also sub in next week while Morgan is on vacation.
Morgan told The New York Times last month that he and CNN President Jeff Zucker mutually decided to end the show because of low ratings, but he would like to remain at the network in another capacity. "I'd like to do work — interviews with big celebrities and powerful people — that is better suited to what I do well and fit with what Jeff is trying to do with the network," he said.
Will you miss Morgan? Who do you hope replaces him?
