The network cancels political debate show for the second time in 30 years
CNN has cancelled its on-again, off again political debate program “Crossfire” Wednesday, insiders with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.
The four hosts will remain with the network as political commentators, insiders also confirm.
The network’s missing plane binge lasted close to two months, bumping “Crossfire” off the air from March 10th through April 30th. In its place was an extended full hour of “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.” Returning on May 1, “Crossfire” made it just two-and-a-half months before its most recent–and final–vanishing act from CNN’s 6:30p.m. timeslot.
Crossfire’s most recent disappearance from CNN’s lineup during the buildup to the 2014 midterm elections was a clear sign that the show wasn’t returning.
