Say it’s so. Then deport him.

An Internet site that reports on issues that emanate from within America’s news rooms said CNN’s Piers Morgan is on the out. It is not clear whether he will sever ties with CNN completely or simply with his coveted prime time slot.

But it’s not clear whether he will sever ties with CNN completely — or simply with his coveted prime time slot.

FTVLive reported that sources say CNN head Jeff Zucker is “actively looking for a replacement for Piers Morgan.” Mr. Morgan in 2012 signed only a one-year contract extension, and that’s about to wrap, the site reported.
You’ll never guess who Zucker has in mind to replace this ratings disaster.

Mr. Zucker would like to replace him with Katie Couric, FTVLive reported. But he’s not counting on her, keeping an open mind about other replacement hosts, too, the sources said.

“He’s looking at other people besides Katie,” one said, to FTVLive.

Smart move if he’s looking to improve the ratings.
