Deadline: Hollywood was also the first to report that Anderson was approached about replacing Matt Lauer on The Today Show later this year.
TVNewser is reporting that Cooper is in flux at CNN and has some leway in his contract now that his daytime talk show is coming to an end. They write:
One thing is clear: the next few months will likely decide Cooper’s fate at CNN. With the cancellation of his daytime talk show, Cooper is believed to have more flexibility in his contract, potentially allowing him to look into other opportunities. That said, and as the pilot indicates, CNN executives do not want to lose the anchor, whose name has become synonymous with terrific field reportage. “CNN does not want to lose Anderson, he is the best thing they have going right now,” one staffer told TVNewser.
If you're interested there's more to read on this subject at HuffPo, The Hollywood Reporter TVGuide, and TMZ.

Roland Martin's last day at CNN is April 6th. He announced it on twitter yesterday:
Martin send this email to POLITICO:
[My] agents notified me that they had been informed that at the conclusion of the two month extension granted in February, my last day at CNN would be April 6. I have thoroughly enjoyed my little over six years there. There are many folks I will miss dearly, especially wonderful colleagues like Josanne Lopez, Soledad O’Brien, Ali Velshi, and so many bookers and producers.
But I also miss the folks I tried to speak for and represent the most when I was on the air: the men and the women who worked on the crew; the security guards; and even the janitorial workers. Those were the people I most spoke for; those were the people who would cheer me on as I walked down the streets, in the grocery store; and at airports.
I have had the likes of Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, Spike Lee, Halle Berry, and others in sports and entertainment thank me for being an unwavering and unapologetic voice of truth, and unwilling to back down when someone needed to stand up.
Before I signed with CNN, I sat in the lobby of 1 Time Warner Center and said, “God, if it’s your will to be here, then so be it.’ I said the same these last two months.
I’ve worked hard to ensure that my voice wasn’t heard in one place. I will continue with my show on TV One, a network I was with before CNN; will continue my daily segment on the Tom Joyner Morning Show; and will continue my nationally syndicated column.
In my final days at CNN when I’m on the air, I will to do as the Tuskegee Airmen did, fight to the last hour, last minute, last second, for what is right. And I will do that as long as there is breath in my body.

Howell will report for the network and will be based out of Chicago. Machado will report for CNN, CNN en Español and CNN Latino, and will be based in Atlanta.
“Pam is an outstanding reporter who made her mark in Washington, D.C. with exceptional coverage of domestic breaking news and enterprise reporting. The passion in her work is evident and we are so happy to have her join the CNN team,” said Ken Jautz, executive vice president of CNN/U.S.

During her six years at WJLA-TV, she has anchored breaking news and continuous coverage of several high profile events, including Hurricane Sandy, a metro train derailment and the historic blizzard of 2010.
