A CNN source told the New York Post that the unstable network is having problems recruiting key talent to a place that was once known as “the most trusted name in news.”
“We can’t find talent who wants to come to CNN. No one wants to come because we scrap things after a year,” the source told the Post. “Every talent agency we contact can’t get us anyone… Even talent from larger local markets refuse to come here, because they are afraid.”
Daytime anchors Brooke Baldwin and Carol Costello will reportedly be moving from Atlanta to New York to be closer to Zucker while Don Lemon is angling for a primetime show, even though nearly every in-house talent the network has tried to force upon its primetime viewers has tanked.
