CNN Searches For Conservative, Liberal Voices To Square Off

cnnlogo.jpgOur colleagues at FishbowlLA have some exclusive news today: CNN is auditioning talent in the hopes of casting one conservative and one liberal host for a new “Crossfire” type of show.

FBLA has some ideas about who the news network might be looking at:

A few on the liberal side were Steve A. Smith of ESPN, Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks, Roland Martin who’s already on Campbell Brown‘s show frequently and Errol Louis a CNN contributor.

On the conservative side were radio personalities Roe Conn from Chicago, Joe Watkins from Philadelphia and Steve Malzberg from New Jersey. Plus frequent Glenn Beck fill-in Joe Pagliarulo from Texas.

Who do you think would be good for the show? Leave suggestions for co-hosts — and show names — in the comments.

FBLA Exclusive: CNN is Auditioning Talent for New Show

According to our CNN source, the “most trusted name in news” is casting for a new Crossfire type of Hannity and Colmes show. Meaning: they’re auditioning liberal personalities and conservative personalities to co-host one show.

Way to really break the mold, CNN.

No word on who or what the show would be replacing or what the name of the show will be (Crossballs is already taken).

A few on the liberal side were Steve A. Smith of ESPN, Cenk Uygur of the Young Turks, Roland Martin who’s already on Campbell Brown‘s show frequently and Errol Louis a CNN contributor.

On the conservative side were radio personalities Roe Conn from Chicago, Joe Watkins from Philadelphia and Steve Malzberg from New Jersey. Plus frequent Glenn Beck fill-in Joe Pagliarulo from Texas.

So we’re guessing they’re looking for two different personalities in two different people to off-set having two in one with Lou Dobbs?
