HLN will launch former CNN morning host Carol Costello’s new show in April, with Across America with Carol Costello anchoring from 11AM-1 PM. Fellow CNN alum Michaela Pereira, who debuted in that HLN block of time in July, is moving to 3-5 PM ET.
Costello announced in late January that she was the latest CNN host to move to HLN.
“Before I thank you for joining me, I would like to share a big life-change with you,” she said at the top of her January 30 telecast. “I have lived apart from my husband for many years, but he was close by because he also lived on the East Coast. Last year my husband snagged a fantastic job in Los Angeles at LMU. And I kind of miss him,” she explained.
Costello joins former CNN New Day host Pereira, who debuted her eponymous HLN show in July. Ashleigh Banfield, who ended her Legal View duties on CNN in August and moved to HLN primetime, continues at 8 PM ET.

6-11 AM: Morning Express with Robin Meade
