New Day is a weekday morning television show on CNN, anchored by Alisyn Camerota and John Berman, from the CNN studios at Time Warner Center in New York City. It began in June 2013. In 2014, Camerota replaced Kate Bolduan, the show's original co-host with Chris Cuomo, who himself departed the show in May 2018. The weekend editions, known respectively as New Day Saturday and New Day Sunday, are anchored by Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul, from the network's world headquarters at CNN Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The first two hours of the weekday editions of the programme are simulcast on CNN International.
New Day premiered on June 17, 2013, and airs from 6:00-9:00 a.m. ET (5:00-9:00 a.m. ET during breaking news events), originating from CNN's Time Warner Center studios in New York City. New Day replaced Starting Point, formerly anchored by Soledad O'Brien, which had aired since January 2, 2012.
Chris Cuomo joined CNN from ABC News in January 2013. Michaela Pereira joined CNN from Los Angeles' KTLA in May 2013. Former Good Morning America and CBS Evening News executive producer Jim Murphy was senior executive producer from launch until 2017. Izzy Povich has taken over as morning VP. Javier Morgado is the executive producer. Pereira departed the show on April 29, 2016. Pereira now anchors a live, two-hour daytime news program on CNN’s sister channel HLN, which began in July 2016.
The New Day set, located in Studio 71 at Time Warner Center, consists of a red/orange-colored faux brick background, highlighted by spot lighting, with inset LCD panels, glass-fronted cubicles, and a glass-topped desk on a central podium. It was designed by multiple Emmy Award-winning design agency, Jack Morton PDG, (part of Jack Morton Worldwide), which has also designed the studio sets for The View on ABC, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on CBS, The Daily Show on Comedy Central and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO.
Mediaite ranked New Day as the best morning cable news show of 2018, in addition saying Avlon's Reality Check segment is, "a winning addition to the show — his comprehensive fact-check segments are a standout, and a welcome feature on television in a current era lacking in reality-based news coverage."
