Candy Crowley to Take Over CNN’s State of the Union


When John King steps down from CNN’s Sunday morning program State of the Union next week, long-time political correspondent Candy Crowley will take over, CNN announced yesterday. King is leaving to develop an evening show to fill the spot left open by Lou Dobbs’s abrupt exit. Crowley’s promotion makes her the only woman currently anchoring a Sunday morning political talk show. So the only question is, does she know how to work King’s magic wall? [NYT]
