According to the NY Times, CNN has cancelled their political news program John King, USA. The daily TV show will stay on the air until the end of the month. Starting in July, CNN will expand The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer to fill three hours once again, from 4pm to 7pm.
In an internal memo, CNN executive Ken Jautz wrote that the schedule change was made to improve political coverage for this election this year. Taking on a similar role thtat he had in 2008, King will be the network’s top campaign correspondent for the remainder of this presidential election cycle.
