Wallace, who has been hosting the interview show Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace? for HBO Max and CNN, will feature a “provocative panel of some of the country’s best reporters and influential commentators” to analyze the latest news and the 2024 presidential race. Amanpour’s show will focus on international developments.

CNN also will continue with plans for King Charles, a weekly limited series hosted by Gayle King and Charles Barkley that will debut later in the fall on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. The show had been one of the higher-profile orders during the Licht era.

Alysin Camerota, who has been anchoring the 10 p.m. CNN Tonight, with Coates also filling in, will focus on reporting for the longform unit, including the Sunday evening series The Whole Story with Anderson Cooper.

The changes are the most significant since an interim leadership team took control of the network following the departure of Chris Licht. Amy Entelis, David Leavy, Virginia Moseley and Eric Sherling are leading the network.

The leadership team said in a statement, “One of CNN’s key differentiators is our deep roster of experienced journalists, reporters and storytellers. Many joined CNN early in their careers and have grown with the network throughout the years. They are extraordinarily talented and share the same CNN sensibility: versatility, determination and an inquisitive and empathetic approach to reporting the news. By expanding the range and depth of our programming lineup across multiple dayparts, we are strengthening our reporting excellence throughout the schedule, elevating our ability to tell great stories across platforms, and doubling down on CNN’s position as the most trusted name in news.”

A summary of the new shows and hosts below:
