The first program to air live weekdays on the network, it preceded American Morning at 5:00 a.m. ET. Similar to First Look on MSNBC, the program was based on covering the news stories of the morning without talk and analysis, usually with correspondents on location or taped stories from the previous evening.
In October 2005, as a cost-cutting measure, the program was canceled. The last official broadcast was on November 25, 2005. Carol Costello graciously bid her crew farewell, thanking them, and telling viewers how much they will be missed. Carol currently is an anchor on CNN, reports on events such as the last Space Shuttle launch, and now hosts the 9 AM-11 AM ET timeslot on CNN Newsroom.
The timeslot was occupied by a rerun of Anderson Cooper 360, with the 6am hour being replaced by American Morning which expanded. The Anderson Cooper 360 rerun was usually replaced with an early Live edition of American Morning if there is breaking news. It was then replaced by American Morning Wake-Up Call until the cancellation of American Morning. Both hours are now occupied by Early Start.
In the early 1990s, there were 3 Daybreaks in the morning. At 6am CNN Daybreak with Rick Moore and Molly McCoy, at 7am CNN Daybreak with Bob Cain in Atlanta and Norma Quarles in New York and at 8am CNN Daybreak with Rick Moore and Molly McCoy.
