Wolf Blitzer reups with CNN; John King takes over Sunday mornings

December 8, 2008 |  9:42 am

CNN announced today that Wolf Blitzer, its lead political anchor, has extended his contract with the network through the next presidential campaign. Blitzer will continue anchoring the three-hour news block “The Situation Room” each weekday afternoon but is paring back his weekend duties, handing off Sunday mornings to chief national correspondent John King.

King, who drew attention during this year’s campaign for his facility with using CNN’s “Magic Wall” to break down electoral returns, will anchor a political news block each Sunday from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., beginning in January.
