Bill Weir hasn’t been on CNN since April 25th. He did some anchoring (Piers Morgan Tonight, The Lead, and CNN Tonight at 9pm) before disappearing…only to later explain his absence was as a result of a forthcoming series he was taping.
CNN has been relatively quiet on Weir’s project. CNN publicists haven’t returned any emails related to this series to CNN Commentary.
However, he very recently updated his Twitter avatar…
And while I don’t know the specifics of his series, I’m willing to bet that picture is part of it.
His show will almost certainly air in primetime, because when he signed with CNN, he reportedly had a primetime clause included in his contract.
