After 10 Years, ‘American Morning’ Signs Off

This morning, at the end of the final CNN “American Morning,” anchors Alina Cho and Deborah Feyerick welcomed show staffers to the set.

“These are the folks who get up in the middle of the night when everyone is sleeping to bring you this show and they do it with a lot of enthusiasm and love and energy,” said Feyerick, as the director took shots of the studio as well as the control room.

“American Morning” launched on September 12, 2001, with original host Paula Zahn anchoring five months earlier than planned due to the 9/11 attack the day before. It has been without a permanent anchor team since John Roberts and Kiran Chetry departed at different points, earlier this year.

On Monday, CNN’s two new 2-hour morning shows, “Early Start with Ashleigh Banfield and Zoraida Sambolin” and “Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien” will launch beginning at 5amET.
