CNN is reportedly looking to develop a political show with an all-Black panel featuring regular contributors April Ryan, Andrew Gillum, Angela Rye, and Bakari Sellers.
“It was the most excitement on that morning show since Chris Cuomo left as co-anchor,” a source told Page Six. “CNN is fast-tracking talks … to develop it into a stand-alone show.”
And the powerhouse squad seemingly enjoy working together. Last week Ryan, who is a veteran White House reporter, sent out a tweet noting: “Your favorite @CNN squad was back on @NewDay today! I so enjoyed working with @Bakari_Sellers@AndrewGillum & my girl @angela_rye the last three mornings. #CNN#DemDebate.”
If CNN moves forward with plans for the show, early chatter is that it could start as a weekend program that would rival MSNBC’s programming with Joy Reid, the Rev. Al Sharpton, and Kendis Gibson.
