Howard Kurtz ‘Status Unchanged’ At CNN

CNN “Reliable Sources” host Howard Kurtz may not have a job at The Daily Beast anymore, but he still has his CNN hosting gig… for now. A CNN spokesperson tells THR:

“There has been no status change with Howard Kurtz, he remains the host of Reliable Sources,” said a network spokesperson on Friday. “He will address this issue on the program this weekend.”

We heard from a CNN source yesterday that Kurtz’s future at the network is up in the air. Since then, we have heard from others, who say that Kurtz is on a week-to-week contract with the channel.

TVNewser has also confirmed that CNN has reached out to other media critics about potentially doing something for the channel over the last year or so, although so far nothing fruitful has come from those discussions.

What will Kurtz say about the incident this weekend? Stay tuned.
