John King abdicated his office to Jake Tapper and left a bottle of Johnny Walker Black as a moving in gift.
UK Daily Mail quotes a CNN source: “People are wondering what Jeff has planned for John. His own show didn’t work and it was dropped, so where can he go? What would be the best place for him?”

The longtime CNN correspondent who hosted ‘John King USA’ until disappointing ratings forced it off the air last summer, signed a short-term contract extension at the end of last year.
