CBS CEO Considers New `Late Late' Host After Colbert Hire

Don't Miss Out —

April 10 (Bloomberg) -- CBS, which today named Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman, is also considering a new host for “The Late Late Show.”

“12:30 is up in the air,” CBS Corp. Chief Executive Officer Leslie Moonves said in an interview, referring to the time slot now occupied by Craig Ferguson.

A change at that hour would complete a makeover of the TV network’s late-night talent lineup. CBS is still considering Ferguson, whose contract expires in June. Moonves said he’s weighing many alternatives.

“Obviously, we’re considering all sorts of candidates and women are among them,” Moonves said. “A woman would be great in late night.”

Cheryl Maisel, a spokeswoman for Ferguson at PMK-BNC, didn’t immediately respond to phone and e-mail requests for comment.
