About CNN American Morning

CNN Daybreak was an early morning news television program on CNN, anchored from New York by Carol Costello. It debuted on June 1, 1980, the same day CNN went live. The first program to air live weekdays on the network, it preceded American Morning at 5:00 a.m. ET. Similar to First Look on MSNBC, the program was based on covering the news stories of the morning without talk and analysis, usually with correspondents on location or taped stories from the previous evening. Until spring 2005, Daybreak was aired from the CNN Center in Atlanta. Costello then moved to New York following her marriage. The show moved to the Time Warner Center shortly after. In October 2005, as a cost-cutting measure, the program was canceled. The last official broadcast was on November 25, 2005. Carol Costello graciously bid her crew farewell, thanking them, and telling viewers how much they will be missed.
