CNN is filling in some of the gaps in its nightly schedule, at least through the midterms, with Jake Tapper hosting CNN Tonight at 9 PM ET, and Alisyn Camerota and Laura Coates sharing anchor duties in the 10 PM-midnight block. A series of substitute hosts have anchored the 9 PM ET slot since Chris Cuomo was fired ate last year. Tapper, chief Washington correspondent and anchor of The Lead and State of the Union, will host CNN Newsroom from D.C. Camerota is anchor of CNN Newsroom, and Coates, CNN legal analyst, already has guest hosted CNN Tonight. There has been some speculation that Tapper would be a natural candidate to fill the primetime slot, given his presence across the network. Cuomo, meanwhile, is joining Nexstar’s NewsNation, with his new primetime series scheduled to premiere on Oct. 3.
