AM’s Rocking Morn

June 26, 2008

Yesterday American Morning’s new executive producer let former MuchMusic VJ and current AM co-host John Roberts amp up CNN’s cable news morning program. Instead of the usual elevator music introducing segments, he had kicking rock, e.g., Billy Idol’s “Rock the Cradle” and Kid Rock’s “All Summer Long” sometimes segueing to a similarly themed segment. Now if he and his co-host Kiran Chetry can exorcise AM from its current state of stodginess and establish a hip groove, it may begin to rival FNC’s Fox & Friends.
