CNN insiders are upset at the way network boss Jeff Zucker handled the replacement of “New Day” co-anchor Kate Bolduan on Friday.

Bolduan has been on maternity leave since September, and Alisyn Camerota has filled in for her, joining Chris Cuomo and Michaela Pereira.

But while Bolduan tended to her new baby, and eyes were on the Paris terror crisis, CNN announced that she’ll be replaced by Camerota permanently.

Bolduan will now co-host “@This Hour” at 11 a.m. An insider scoffed: “The manner in which Jeff did it is angering female staffers…They took [Bolduan] out while she was on maternity leave and buried it on a day when there’s serious news.”

CNN didn’t get back to us.
