CNN announced Wednesday that it will cancel former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s 8 p.m. talk show, “In the Arena,” and instead move Anderson Cooper’s newscast from 10 p.m. EST into Spitzer’s former slot, the New York Times reported.

Cooper’s newscast will be rebroadcast at 10 p.m. as well.

“I’m looking forward to the new time slot and am excited to share AC360 with a new audience at 8 p.m., while still connecting with my regular viewers at 10 p.m.,” Cooper said in the network’s statement.

Spitzer has been on CNN since October 2010. He originally co-hosted “Parker-Spitzer” with conservative columnist Kathleen Parker, who left the show in February amid poor ratings. According to Reuters, CNN’s statement gave no mention of why Spitzer’s show would no longer be aired.

Spitzer, Democrat, resigned the governor’s seat in 2008 after a prostitution scandal.

US President Donald Trump will not attend next week's UN General Assembly gathering in person, his chief of staff told journalists aboard Air Force One Thursday, according to a pool report.

The decision marks an about-face for Trump, who last month said he wanted to deliver his speech in the General Assembly hall in New York, even if other world leaders are staying away due to the coronavirus pandemic.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows ended the debate once and for all, telling reporters en route to Wisconsin, where Trump was to hold a campaign rally, that the president would not physically attend the General Assembly's 75th session, which will take place mainly by videoconference due to the health crisis.
