 NEW YORK (AP) — CNN says it’s hiring former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer and conservative columnist Kathleen Parker to co-host a round-table talk show for its struggling prime-time lineup.

Ms. Parker is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist who appears in more than 400 newspapers.

Mr. Spitzer was a renowned prosecutor before being elected state attorney general. Two years ago he left the governor’s mansion in disgrace, following a prostitution scandal.

In recent months, Mr. Spitzer has been increasingly visible on cable-news programs, leading to speculation he would land a permanent job on the air.

His new program, set to air at 8 p.m. EDT weeknights starting this fall, recalls CNN‘s old “Crossfire” debate show.
