“Christine Romans, Mayor of the Morning”

Really, Soledad? Ashleigh Banfield: “I may be the only one who calls her that.” Like a phoenix, former American Morning co-host Christine Romans has apparently reemerged from the ashes of her erstwhile CNN morning show to reappear as a regular on both of its replacements, Early Start (biz whiz) and Starting Point (headlines news reader and occasional biz whiz). She seems to be adored by Early Start co-hosts Ashleigh Banfield and Zoraida Sambolin: however, she may be somewhat less so by Starting Point anchor Soledad O’Brien.

Last Friday mid-show, after Zoraida had teased Christine’s upcoming business report, Ashley passionately  proclaimed, “Christine Romans, Mayor of the Morning!” In reply, Zoraida exclaimed, “I love her!” As an aside to her audience, Ashleigh animatedly added, “I think I may be the only who calls her that: But, I really thinks she is!”

However, Starting Point‘s Soledad may be less inclined to concur. After getting canned at AM for Kiran Chetry almost five years ago, Soledad assuredly has something to prove in her return to the CNN morn, i.e., that she is worthy to reign again, at least, in her time slot. And, relinquishing her title willingly so soon to Christine, her immediate (“interim”) predecessor, is not something that she is apt to do.

    I never do this, but why did CNN’s ruin it’s morning television? Ever since Kiran Chetry left the show, it has gone downhill consistently. Ali was OK, Christine Romans grew on me, but Carol Costello is a constant annoyance. And are you serious, Soledad O’Brien?!?!? She is the worst. I have preferred CNN’s morning shows for years over any other news outlet, but this is a joke. Talent is no better than our local news. I’m done with this network in the morning until things change.

    Soledad is the best! She brings the full package and no doubt is the ruler of the morning.

  7. CNN’s Early Start: American Morning Again? « Carpe Diem Says:

    […] As well as Alina–not to mention, Early Start suits–should have been. Early Start was a marked improvement from its short and dismal past: E.g., Co-host Zoraida Sambolin simply came alive today and asserted herself charismatically with uncharacteristic aplomb. Perhaps, it was simply because the rather reserved Zoraida was no longer tethered to her regular co-host Ashleigh Banfield: I.e., according to Inside Cable News, Ashleigh lacks the requisite chemistry with Zoraida as a ”hyper and over-caffeinated [anchor who leaves] no pause unmolested” in contradistinction with the more reserved Zoraida. Furthermore, it was a delight to see the facile, informed exchanges between Ali and Christine in clear contrast to the usual sycophancy of Ashleigh toward her “Mayor of the Morning” Christine. […]
