As the Queen of Daytime’s rein comes to an end, there has been an endless number of rumors about who will fill her shoes.
The latest name on that growing list of people hoping to take over Oprah Winfrey’s daytime talk show time slot: Anderson Cooper.
The Anderson Cooper 360 host is in talks to move from CNN to a syndicated talk show, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The project will feature the usual daytime fare, like pop culture and topical news. It is expected to be pitched to TV stations for a fall 2011 start.
“Over the course of the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of daytime programs,” Cooper said. “It’s fun and interesting to work in daytime television. The format is unique and you can really go in-depth on a wide range of fascinating and compelling stories. With this new program I hope to relay important information and relate to people and the audience in a completely different way. It’s an exciting opportunity to show another side of myself and create something worthwhile and special in daytime.”
