Beginning Feb. 10, “Early Start” anchor John Berman and “New Day” anchor Michaela Pereira will co-anchor CNN’s 11 a.m. hour, with “Legal View With Ashleigh Banfield” shifting to noon ET, the timeslot currently occupied by “Around the World.”

“Around the World” co-host Suzanne Malveaux will shift to national correspondent for CNN, covering politics, breaking news and  international news. The move will allow Malveaux to return to Washington, D.C. to better care for her mother, whose struggle with ALS has been chronicled on CNN.
