Kaitlan Collins Named CNN’s 9 p.m. Anchor

From a New York Times story by Michael M. Grynbaum headlined “Kaitlan Collins, Moderator of Trump Forum, Is Named CNN’s 9 p.m. Anchor”:

CNN has selected Kaitlan Collins to host a new weeknight show at 9 p.m., elevating her to one of the most coveted time slots in cable news a week after she moderated a contentious town hall with former President Donald J. Trump.

The new role for Ms. Collins was announced by CNN’s chairman, Chris Licht, on Wednesday, just ahead of a presentation to advertisers in Midtown Manhattan hosted by Warner Bros. Discovery, CNN’s parent company.
