CNN's Shake-Up

Wolf Blitzer will host a new show starting in the summer. Its a three-hour, late-afternoon affair that will replace "Crossfire" and "Inside Politics" The show, which does not yet have a name, will run from 3-6 p.m. ET. Blitzer, who already hosts two hours weekdays (noon-1 p.m. ET and 5-6 p.m. ET) and "Wolf Blitzer Reports" on Sundays, will be the primary host.

Details have yet to be worked out, but Jon Klein, president of CNN/US, said Tuesday that it would showcase the network's reporting and analytical assets with a special focus on breaking news.

"It will offer a new and enticing way to look at the world for busy people," Klein said.

I wonder what DC Media girl will have to say about his one. I kinda like Inside Politics. Cross Fire is hurting us, but couldn't they find a newer face that would breath some fresh air into a daytime program than Blitzer's? You have him for one hour a day now, but three..ouch.
