CNN announced Wednesday that it is bringing back "Crossfire," hosted by former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, former White House adviser Van Jones, former Obama adviser Stephanie Cutter, and current MSNBC host S.E. Cupp.
"Few programs in the history of CNN have had the kind of impact on political discourse that Crossfire did – it was a terrific program then, and we believe the time is right to bring it back and do it again," said Jeff Zucker, President of CNN Worldwide according to a press release. "We look forward to the opportunity to host passionate conversation from all sides of the political spectrum. Crossfire will be the forum where America holds its great debates."
"Crossfire" is a debate-style show that pits one conservative pundit and one liberal pundit against each other on a wide range of topics. The revamped show will make its debut this fall, but CNN didn't specify for which time slot.
