The rumors are flying around Mr. Zucker and who's in and who's out. Here's what we know as of now:
According to the Washington Post Mark Whitaker, who joined CNN in 2011 as executive vice president and managing editor, responsible for editorial content, is quitting. In a memo to staff today he said ' with a new leader who has his own “forceful ideas,” he thought it best to step aside'.
Erik Erikson wrote at Red State that he's leaving CNN. While he writes that it was a difficult decision we're not sure it was really his decision to make.
Power couple James Carville and Mary Matalin are also out, according to FishbowlDC sources. So are Bill Bennett and Maria Cardona, although CNN Espanol will keep Cardona on staff.
TMZ is reporting that Ann Curry isn't being courted by Zucker, despite all those rumors people have been quoting for weeks now.
That's it for this hour, stay tuned........

“Chris is an accomplished anchor who is already an established name in morning television, as well as a widely respected investigative journalist,” said Zucker. “What I love about Chris is that he is passionate about every story he tells, never forgets about the viewer, and represents the type of journalism that makes CNN great.”
“This is a fantastic opportunity to do what I value the most and hopefully to do the work that I do best,” said Cuomo. “While it’s very difficult to leave ABC News, a place filled with people I have loved working with for many years, I am excited about my future with CNN.”
Prior to joining CNN, Cuomo was co-anchor of the Emmy Award-winning ABC News newsmagazine 20/20 and chief law and justice correspondent for ABC News. In just the last year, he booked major interviews in the Madoff scandal, Rutgers student case, the John Edwards scandal, and with Penn State Coach Jerry Sandusky’s victim No. 1. From September 2006 – December 2009, Cuomo was the news anchor for Good Morning America, and covered every major story at home and abroad during that time. Overseas, he was an embedded reporter in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iraq. Domestically, he distinguished himself covering the continuing problem of shootings like Virginia Tech, Ft. Hood, and the Pennsylvania Amish school shootings; hurricanes Katrina and Rita; the Sago Mine collapse, and the Minneapolis bridge collapse in August 2007. Cuomo has been honored with numerous industry accolades for his investigative reporting including multiple Emmy nominations and awards, a Polk, a Peabody, two Edward R. Murrows, a Loeb and the American Bar Association Silver Gavel Award.
