Andy Levy, the former Fox Newser who joined HLN’s S.E. Cupp Unfiltered as a senior producer and daily panelist, appears to be gone from the show, which has since switched from a nightly HLN show to a weekly CNN show, airing on Saturday nights.
Since the show’s shift, Levy has not appeared on the show. He was with CNN/HLN for about a year.
Repeated attempts to seek comment from CNN, Cupp, and Levy were made.
For the entire hour on January 4’s edition of HLN’s S. E. Cupp Unfiltered, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer will appear along anchor, S. E. Cupp.
As a promo for the special notes, it will cover the first year since Trump’s inauguration.
Cupp told Mediaite in a statement, “Sean and I are friends. He saw Unfiltered one night and liked what we were doing. I suggested we try something similar together — a fun, smart lively look at the week in news. He was game.”
The two mentioned the upcoming show on Twitter as well:
HLN is re-jiggering its lineup (again), reports TVNewser. To keep its programming live from 6am until 8pm, network execs have decided to move S.E. Cupp Unfiltered from 7pm, and place it right after Michaela ends at 5. Cupp’s show, although it has made headlines for many of its panel discussions, isn’t really a ratings hit at 7.
Nor is Ashleigh Banfield’s Primetime Justice, which will also be moving and expanding to two hours, airing from 6pm to 8pm. But since it isn’t in primetime anymore, it will be renamed Crime & Justice with Ashleigh Banfield.
The scheduling changes go into effect Monday, December 4.
HLN boss Jen Kautz said of the changes, “This new line-up creates a stronger flow into prime, which now hosts a robust library of highly-rated HLN and CNN Original programming, designed for us to win. I want to thank you for your hard-work and flexibility over the past couple of years as we continue to position HLN for greater success.”
