Veteran journalist Howard Kurtz is no stranger to criticizing the media. He did it for 20 years as a media columnist for The Washington Post and as host of CNN's long-running "Reliable Sources" from 1998 through the first half of 2013. So it's no surprise that shortly after departing CNN in mid-2013 for rival Fox News Channel he would premiere a show for his new employer that is modeled after his previous program. In addition to Kurtz and his weekly panel discussing how the press covers a variety of topics that include technology, social media, politics and sports, the host also interviews some of the country's top journalists. And, as you might expect in these social mediacentric times, "MediaBuzz" features some viewers' questions and comments on the show.
Hosted by CNN's chief Washington correspondent Jake Tapper, "State of the Union" features one-on-one interviews with top newsmakers on politics and policy.

With veteran Washington correspondent John King in the anchor chair, "Inside Politics" focuses on the top political stories of the day with a rotating round table of top sourced reporters from CNN and from other media outlets. The half-hour program gives viewers an inside look at the stories driving Washington, directly from reporters on the ground. Prior to its revival in 2014, "Inside Politics" was first headed by Judy Woodruff, and it aired for more than 20 years on CNN before its cancellation in 2005.

After airing several different programs in this time slot in recent years, CNN attempts to solidify its prime-time schedule by moving Chris Cuomo to the toughest hour in cable news. Cuomo, the former co-anchor of CNN's morning show "New Day," eschews panel discussions in favor of in-depth one-on-one interviews that test politicians and newsmakers on their positions. He also analyzes the news of the day and presents breaking news. Described by one publication as "America's toughest news anchor," Cuomo wants his show to be known as one that debates with decency. "The need is clear," he says. "Hopefully we help fill it."
