A one time ferocious opponent of the online gambling industry, Eliot Spitzer, is being considered as host of a new debate show like "Crossfire" to replace anchor Campbell Brown's 8 pm EST time slot.

Brown announced on Wednesday that she will be stepping down as anchor during that hour due to low ratings.

"Simply put, the ratings for my program are not where I would like them to be," Brown said in a statement released Tuesday. "It is largely for this reason that I am stepping down as anchor of CNN's 'Campbell Brown.' "

Spitzer, who was marred in a sex scandal as New York Governor some years back forcing his resignation, has denied the claims made by The Washington Examiner.

Spitzer surfaced this week as a "fill in" anchor for MSNBC's anchor Dylan Ratigan's show Monday afternoon.

As Attorney General of New York, Spitzer aggressively targeted banking institutions that conducted business with online gambling firms.  Most notably, Spitzer launched an investigation into PayPal, the popular Web payment processing company that once partnered with the i-Gaming sector.
