Host of CNN’s Trump Town Hall Is About to Get Career-Changing News: Report

Published on

According to reports, CNN is preparing to offer morning anchor Kaitlan Collins the prime-time slot formerly occupied by her former colleague Don Lemon.

Last year, Lemon was demoted from a prime-time slot and later joined Collins and network anchor Poppy Harlow on “CNN This Morning.”

Following poor ratings and a string of scandals, the network dismissed him on April 24, after 17 years on the job.

According to multiple reports, CNN CEO Chris Licht could offer Collins the large chair as early as next week, making her the network’s new face.

Dylan Byers of Puck News reported that Licht was considering Collins for prime time hours before her heavily criticized performance as the moderator of Wednesday’s town hall in New Hampshire, which featured former President Donald Trump.

According to Byers’ Wednesday report, she would receive the upcoming promotion regardless of her performance against Trump on Wednesday.

“Kaitlan’s offer is not contingent on her performance at tonight’s town hall, but, given the Trump X-factor, those 90 minutes have the potential to modify, accelerate, or stifle the arc of her career,” Byers said, according to Mediaite.

Byers added, “At the very least, her performance tonight will set the tone for a new Collins era at CNN, which, barring any f***-ups, will run at least through the 2024 presidential election.”

Collins’s behavior throughout the event has received widespread criticism.

The native of Alabama repeatedly interrupted Trump and recycled old narratives concerning the 2020 presidential election and the January 6 Capitol invasion.

In her attempts to “fact-check” the former president in real-time, she also repeated several untruths.

Collins lied about Trump’s attempts to deploy National Guard soldiers to Washington on January 6 and about the total number of miles of border wall built during his presidency.

Her hostility toward Trump is unlikely to win over any conservative viewers who hoped CNN, under Licht’s leadership, would attempt to cultivate them.

In the meantime, many on the left were outraged that the network gave Trump a platform and vented their fury at Collins for losing control of the event.

Licht said on a conference call Thursday morning that he was struck by Collins. Former network presenter Brian Stelter reported this.

The New York Post previously reported that Licht has long viewed Collins as the next “it girl” at CNN.
