Chris Cuomo Surprises Michaela Pereira On Her Last Day at KTLA

With the launch of CNN’s “New Day” just three weeks away, Michaela Pereira is packing her bags and moving to New York. But there was one last surprise in store for the KTLA morning anchor on her last Los Angeles broadcast: a surprise visit from “New Day” anchor Chris Cuomo.

“I know it’s hard to have somebody with the energy and the passion that Michaela has leave. It’s hard,” Cuomo told Pereira’s KTLA co-anchors. “But I gotta tell you — guys, look at it this way: I really need her. I need her more than you need her. You guys are #1, you’re #1 forever, I need her!”

The KTLA co-anchors offered to swap Pereira for Wolf Blitzer or John King. “I’d have to go to [Jeff] Zucker, to see if maybe he would do both jobs, because he’s the only guy with enough star power,” Cuomo joked. Watch the video after the jump.
