Maybe Anderson Cooper can fill Oprah's void in daytime TV? The CNN anchor is getting his own daytime talk show next fall. (No name yet.) It will be distributed by Warner Bros.—parent company Time Warner also owns CNN—and syndicated nationally. Plenty of slots should be available with Oprah ending her show, notes the Daily News. Cooper will continue to anchor his nightly AC360 on CNN, says the network.

“Over the course of the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of daytime programs,” Cooper said in a statement. “It’s fun and interesting to work in daytime television. The format is unique and you can really go in-depth on a wide range of fascinating and compelling stories." (More Anderson Cooper stories.)
