CNN is said to be considering a revival of its popular political debate show “Crossfire’’ — but if it does, don’t expect Pat Buchanan to return to the airwaves.

“Crossfire for seniors? … I don’t know that I’m up for it these days,’’ Buchanan told Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’

Story continues below.



TVNewser reported the long-running show, which aired from 1982 to 2005, may be brought back as a regular 30-minute show on the network founded by Ted Turner.

Over the years, “Crossfire’’ featured such pundits as Buchanan, James Carville, Tony Snow, Robert Novak, John Sununu, Mary Matalin, Lynne Cheney, Tucker Carlson, Geraldine Ferraro, Paul Begala, and Michael Kinsley.

Buchanan told Steve Malzberg that he has not been approached about coming back, but believes it is a good time for CNN to launch a revival.

“It would be a great idea and I would encourage [CNN President Jeff] Zucker to give it a try,’’ Buchanan said.

“I was on ‘Crossfire’ from 1982 into 1999 and then I took three leaves of absence, one of them to go work for Ronald Reagan in the White House and two to run for president against George H. W. Bush and then against Bob Dole,’’ Buchanan said.

“But I really enjoyed those years. It was a great show.’’

TVNewser said CNN has not commented on the “Crossfire’’ its report.
