CNN is eyeballing contributors to host all-black panel show: report

CNN is looking to add a new all-black panel show to its weekend programming, according to a Page Six report. During the Democratic debates last week, airing on New Day, CNN had on CNN commentators April Ryan, Bakari Sellers, Angela Rye, and Andrew Gillum. After their appearances, CNN is looking into signing them to their own show to “rival… Joy Reid [and] the Rev. Al Sharpton.”

“It was the most excitement on [New Day] since Chris Cuomo left as co-anchor,” a source told the publication. “CNN is fast-tracking talks … to develop it into a stand-alone show. The early chatter is that it could start as a weekend show that would rival MSNBC’s programming with Joy Reid, the Rev. Al Sharpton and Kendis Gibson.”
