CNN's new morning show will be called "New Day" and debut on Monday, June 10, the network announced on Tuesday.
The show, which will air from 6 to 9 a.m., will be hosted by Chris Cuomo, Kate Bolduan and Michaela Pereira. "Early Start with John Berman & Zoraida Sambolin" will precede it from 5 to 6 a.m.
CNN mornings have been one of the network's most closely-watched programming changes since Jeff Zucker took over in January. He hired Chris Cuomo away from ABC News to host the new program, and named Kate Bolduan his co-anchor in March.
That news put an end to rumors that had been swirling since December that Erin Burnett could move to mornings. Ultimately, there was no new deal between the host and CNN. In February, CNN announced it was getting rid of "Starting Point," and Soledad O'Brien would be returning to her old role as documentary reporter.

Since joining CNN a few months ago, Cuomo has helped lead coverage on all major news stories, including the Boston attacks, papal conclave, State of the Union address and Christopher Dorner pursuit. The award-winning anchor and correspondent came from ABC News where he anchored “20/20” and “Good Morning America.”
Bolduan most recently co-anchored “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,” contributed to America’s Choice 2012 and served as CNN’s congressional correspondent covering the activities of the U.S. House and Senate. As a member of the Capitol Hill unit, Bolduan reported on the negotiations to increase the federal debt limit and the super committee deliberations.
Pereira is the co-host of “KTLA Morning News,” the number one morning program in Los Angeles for the last nine years. During this time, the program has won ten Emmy Awards for “Best Regularly Scheduled Daily News” and three for KTLA’s live coverage of the Rose Parade.
