In what today's (Wednesday) New York Times described as "a big change" in CNN's daytime news coverage, Rick Sanchez will take over the anchor's position from 3 00 p.m. to 5 00 p.m. daily beginning January 18 and his program will be renamed Rick's List . The move will cut Wolf Blitzer's The Situation Room to two hours a night from three. In reporting the development, the Times observed, "The move may portend a more personality-driven daytime programming strategy by CNN, which has watched its share of the cable news viewing audience shrink this year."
