More drastic changes are incoming at CNN, a new report reveals.

According to The Daily Wire, CNN morning show New Day could be next on the chopping block, as President Chris Licht has indicated more cuts are on the way —and not everyone will be happy with them.

“I want to acknowledge that this is a time of significant change, and I know that many of you are unsettled,” Licht reportedly told staffers on an editorial staff call Friday. “There will be more changes, and you might not understand it or like it.”

From The Daily Wire: reported that “New Day,” the show started by Licht’s predecessor, Jeff Zucker, is circling the drain. It will be replaced by a roundtable-type program patterned after MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” possibly hosted by Jake Tapper, according to RadarOnline. Licht has reportedly tried to hire “Morning Joe” husband-wife hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski away from the rival liberal cable news network.

“Chris comes from the same breeding ground as Zucker: morning television,” a CNN insider told RadarOnline. “He wants to establish a popular morning show that sets the agenda for the network each day. He doesn’t want to change anchors frequently. He wants strength and stability — and believes it all starts in the all-important morning timeslot.”

New Day has been struggling to compete with other morning shows.
