Chris Cuomo
is calling it quits at "20/20" -- TMZ has learned ... he's moving to CNN very soon.

Sources connected with CNN tell us ... Cuomo will host a morning show.  The buzz is his co-host will be Erin Burnett -- interesting, because we're told Erin's contract at CNN is to do a prime time show ... so if execs move her to an earlier spot, they might have to do a little convincing.

But where there's a will, there's a way -- and we're told CNN honcho Jeff Zucker is up to the task.

Chris served as the news anchor on Good Morning America from 2006-2009 then moved to "20/20."

Watching Erin Burnett is cringe inducing. It's amazing how so many people in an industry can think someone has talent when it is obvious that they don't.

HA HA TMZ, you are slow. RadarOnline reported in December that Erin was boasting to everybody at work that she is moving to co-host a morning show for CNN. And some people were sick of the boasting. She is excited to do it. She was turned down by The Today Show at the beginning of her career. She's happy she will now go head to head with them

A couple of weeks ago, there was a lot of buzz obviously from Burnett's publicist that she was going to have a starring role at CNN and wAs going to eat a prime time slot. So the fact that they're giving her a co-host is hysterical.

So he's trying to make the rounds of all the ****ty left wing garbage shows and channels? All he needs to do know is go join Rachael MadCow and Chris "tingle down my leg" Matthews at MSNBC.

Zucker is well on his way to tearing CNN the rest of the way down.

Who cares? From one liberal dumping station to another one that is at the bottom of the cable news ratings.. Fox News is #1 for good reason.

I think that CNN made a wise move when they hired Erin Burnett. I watch her show all the time. I even DVR it.

She's good looking, fun and really smart. She's not the kind of CNN anchor that the politicians or any guest is going to outsmart or give a bunch of "spin" instead of a real answer. She probably does her homework and knows her stuff on all sorts of topics.

I liked watching her when she was on the business news channel CNBC. She's probably interviewed every successful business leader in the world already.

I don't know if I'd like to see Erin move to a morning show. There's already a lot of competition there from Good Morning America and the Today show isn't there? Who knows, maybe Erin and Chris Cuomo could make it work and get good ratings, etc.
