Exclusive: Zain Asher lands new time slot

As I first reported, John Vause will be co-anchoring a new show out of CNN’s Los Angeles bureau beginning September 28 with Isha Sesay, which meant Zain Asher was out of a time slot.

But, according to a source with knowledge of the situation, Asher will be moving to Sesay’s old slot of 2:30pm ET, taking over CNN NewsCenter — only it won’t be called that.

NewsCenter is over with; beginning on Monday, September 28, it will be known as CNN Newsroom, and will be anchored by Asher.

Asher also serves as the host of the CNNI weekly program, Marketplace Africa.
