CNN Hires Spitzer, Parker to Co-Host New Program

Wednesday, 23 Jun 2010 12:48 PM

CNN says it's hiring former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and conservative columnist Kathleen Parker to co-host a roundtable talk show for its struggling prime-time lineup.

Parker is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who appears in more than 400 newspapers.

Spitzer was a renowned prosecutor before being elected State Attorney General. Two years ago he left the governor's mansion in disgrace, following a prostitution scandal.

In recent months, Spitzer has been increasingly visible on cable-news programs, leading to speculation he would land a permanent job on the air.

His new program, set to air at 8 p.m. Eastern time weeknights starting this fall, recalls CNN's old "Crossfire" debate show.
