Jake Tapper to host Sunday program on CNN

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Jake Tapper will take over as host of CNN's Sunday morning public affairs program "State of the Union" in June.

The former ABC newsman, who hosts a weekday afternoon program on CNN, replaces Candy Crowley. She left CNN in December and a rotating series of substitutes has been filling in ever since.

CNN chief Jeff Zucker on Friday called Tapper a "terrific interviewer who doesn't stop until he gets answers."

It's a time of transition for the Sunday shows. CBS' Bob Schieffer just announced his retirement and he'll be replaced by John Dickerson this summer, and Chuck Todd took over last year on NBC's "Meet the Press."
