Inquirer columnist, former Daily News contributor and syndicated radio host Michael Smerconish will join CNN for a new weekly show that will air Saturday mornings. He'll join CNN this month.

Smerconish will continue to host his Sirius XM show and write his weekly Inquirer piece.

In addition to his weekly show, Smerconish will provide commentary throughout the week for CNN. Smerconish is no stranger to TV. He was previously a contributor to MSNBC and was a guest host for fellow-Philly guy Chris Matthews' Hardball.

"I've long wanted to host a program of my own and I'm appreciative of [CNN Worldwide president] Jeff Zucker for making that dream a reality," Smerconish said in a statement. "I think the type of content I seek to provide is perfectly suited for CNN's non-ideological brand."

Smerconish formally hosted a show on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT, but left the show in March. He was replaced by Dick Morris.

I reached out to Smerconish for comment and will update with his thoughts.
