If you woke up this morning and turned on the TV and saw HLN’s Mike Galanos anchoring, you would probably assume this was HLN’s April Fool’s day prank. After all, last year, Nancy Grace “took over” Morning Express.
But this was no joke.
Morning Express correspondent Mike Galanos joined the show in January 2015, shortly after HLN relaunched and cut his show, HLN Now.
If you woke up extra early (I didn’t), you would have seen HLN biz correspondent Jennifer Westhoven anchoring the morning show from 6-8am.
Mike is set to anchor from 8a-12n.
One thing is for sure… MXP is the number two morning show across cable news in the first quarter of 2015, and by putting Mike in the anchor chair, he’s certain to get more exposure than when he anchored Now.
