SIRIUSXM host MICHAEL SMERCONISH is joining CNN for a weekly TV show airing SATURDAY mornings from NEW YORK. SMERCONISH has been a contributor to MSNBC for several years, including as a regular guest host for "HARDBALL WITH CHRIS MATTHEWS." He will continue his show on SIRIUSXM and his column for the PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER.
CNN WORLDWIDE Pres. JEFF ZUCKER said, “We are thrilled to have MICHAEL join CNN. At a time when the cable news landscape has become increasingly polarized, his independence and passion for reasoned dialogue makes him the perfect fit for CNN.”
SMERCONISH added, “I’ve long wanted to host a program of my own and I’m appreciative of JEFF ZUCKER for making that dream a reality. I think the type of content I seek to provide is perfectly suited for CNN’s non-ideological brand.”
