CNN is getting ready for a major shakeup.

Incoming CNN boss Christ Licht is reportedly in secret talks in hopes of poaching MSNBC stars Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. According to sources close to the matter, Licht is focusing first on morning show and primetime talent as he works to reshape the network’s image.

Radar Online reports:

Licht joined MSNBC as an executive producer in 2005. He developed a close relationship with Scarborough and the two created Morning Joe.

The EP stayed with MSNBC until 2011 when CBS hired him as vice president of programming. The following year, he was responsible for launching the network’s morning show, CBS This Morning.

“When CBS hired Chris, he wanted to hire Joe and Mika to head up his morning show instead of Gayle King. Joe and Mika were into it, but they couldn’t get out of their deal with NBC. Now Chris is pulling the same trick again as he starts his new job at CNN hoping this time, he will be able to pull it off,” sources tell RadarOnline.com. “It is unlikely MSNBC will let them out of their contract, but Chris is a patient man.”

“Chris’ first priority will be fixing CNN’s morning and primetime programming,” sources added. “That is where the big advertiser money is. Anderson CooperDon Lemon, and the morning hosts should be concerned.”

Who are you hoping to see on the revamped CNN and who do you want to go?

If CNN wants to get back to being a “news” channel they need a brand new lineup. Liz Wheeler comes to mind.  Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are just retreads on a bad tire.
