The show "American Morning" was created in the months following the Sept. 11th attacks. Though it has had many incarnations over the years, the show's staff has worked endlessly to provide the best news to our viewers in the morning.
You may have heard that we're morphing into two new shows. Starting Monday, January 2nd, in our time slot you'll see Early Start with Ashleigh Banfield & Zoraida Sambolin from 5am to 7am Eastern, and Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien from 7am to 9am Eastern.
The new shows will be produced by many members of the old AM family, and a few new awesome additions. Though the name and the look is different, our goal is the same.
To our AM viewers, we appreciate your loyalty over the years and we hope you'll be as excited for our new shows as we are. For newcomers, we hope you stick along for the ride...because it's going to be a great one.
Have a very happy, healthy and safe New Year and we'll see you on January 2nd, 2012.
P.S. you can follow our new shows on Twitter and Facebook!
