King, who has been with CNN for over 30 years, has been a fixture on “Inside Politics” since 2014. His decision to step down from hosting duties and focus on reporting on voters in battleground states ahead of the 2024 presidential election comes as a surprise to many.
“I’m thrilled to be taking on this new assignment,” King said in a statement. “Reporting across the country on voters in battleground states is where I got my start, and I’m looking forward to getting back to my roots.”
Meanwhile, Bash has been with CNN since 1993, covering a wide range of political events, including campaigns, Capitol Hill, and the White House. She said she is excited to take on the hosting duties of “Inside Politics” and continue covering the politics that impact Americans’ lives.
“John built an extraordinary show that has attracted a loyal audience of political junkies, and I am looking forward to leading its next chapter,” Bash said in a statement.
The announcement of Bash’s appointment comes as part of a series of changes made within the network since Chris Licht became president in February 2022. Licht has sought to incorporate less bipartisan coverage into CNN’s programs and has made several program assignments changes, including the recent termination of Don Lemon’s 17-year employment at the network.
While it remains to be seen how Bash’s tenure will differ from King’s on “Inside Politics,” CNN has indicated that it will continue to provide in-depth coverage of the politics that impact Americans’ lives.
The announcement of John King stepping down from hosting “Inside Politics” and passing the torch to his ex-wife Dana Bash has stirred curiosity about the future of the drowning network. Despite watching and enjoying the downfall of CNN, many of us non-CNN viewers will be excited to see what other changes the clown show will bring. This week has been a heck of an entertaining week for the network.
