I know this isn’t that interesting for the Gasm, but thought I’d share because it’s a big TV move. Jeff Zucker, the dude that everyone is claiming ran NBC into the ground is leaving Katie Couric’s talk show to be the President of CNN. If you remember, Jeff is the dude that was responsible for the whole Leno/Conan incident…(although he did bring some good things to the network).
Anyway, let’s see where he takes CNN. I wonder if he’ll start a reality division there? Kind of like when MTV went from music videos to reality shows? That would be the ultimate, wouldn’t it? Could you imagine Anderson Cooper hosting CNN‘s version of Big Brother? “Live from Baghdad, it’s Big Burka.”
The Washington Post wrote that Jeff Zucker’s first focus will be the morning lineup, and being the ex-showrunner for the Today Show, that might be the way he can make his mark quickly (no pun intended).
