He doesn’t know it YET, But the CNN staff is whispering that Wolf Blitzer’s air time may be getting shorter and shorter. The struggling cable channel plans to make lots of changes as it tries to win back viewers it has lost, with the biggest shakeup being to on-air talent, including Blitzer, host of “The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer.”
“Wolf is going to be gradually phased out and replaced with a younger, hipper host,” one CNN insider dishes to Confidential. “The decision has been made that people want to look at beautiful people, and although Wolf is no beast, they’re thinking younger.”
Since the arrival of new boss Jeff Zucker in March, the studly Chris Cuomo and handsome Jake Tapper have joined CNN. Staffers expect more handsome fellas to follow.
What do you think....truth or fiction?
