Some big changes ahead. Suddenly London is hot again! Your World Today branding making a comeback! The Brief as well. CNN Today and IDesk canned.

CNN International Adds New Shows from London, Abu Dhabi

CNN International, which reaches nearly 400 million households around the world, is launching two new evening programmes from its London bureau and adding another hour of programming from its Abu Dhabi production centre from 23 September.

Broadcasting live from CNN London weeknights at 10pm BST/11pm CET, The Brief with Bianca Nobilo will provide viewers with an incisive look at the most significant live events and stories of the last 24 hours. This dynamic new half-hour show will cover the UK and beyond, showcasing CNN’s distinctive and agenda-setting reporting.

At 11pm BST/12am CET Your World Today with Isa Soares and Cyril Vanier will break down the day’s most important and talked-about stories around the world, giving context around the news that dominated the day for viewers in EMEA, while informing viewers in Asia about the stories that will help shape theirs.

These new London-based shows follow the successful launch of CNN Newsroom with Max Foster, which airs weekdays at 1pm BST/2pm CET.

Additionally, CNN International is expanding Connect the World with Becky Anderson – the network’s flagship daily programme anchored live from CNN Abu Dhabi – by an hour to give viewers more in-depth interviews with the big names and key political figures shaping the Middle East. This now two-hour show will be anchored by Anderson, and air from 3pm–5pm BST/4pm–6pm CET.

CNN’s weekend lineup will also be enhanced with the addition of CNN Newsroom with Robyn Curnow and CNN Newsroom with Michael Holmes from CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta.

Mike McCarthy, SVP of Programming and General Manager, CNN International, said: “We are delighted to be launching these new shows – which will form a key part of our industry-leading European evening and Asia morning programming lineup – and renewing our commitment to the Middle East with the expansion of Connect the World. International coverage is at the core of what makes CNN unique, and we are committed to delivering first-class reporting to audiences around the world.”




I'm thrilled to see Bianca getting a daily show. She's the big discovery of CNN Brexit coverage and the future of the channel imo.

BUT, Michael and Amara and CNN Today getting axed??? This is a shocker. Michael moved to weekends. That is terrible, plus Amara is out of the schedule. Is she moving to domestic???

Would make more sense to have YWT as a European morning show and leave CNN Today as it was.

The new weekday schedule in CET:

06.00 CNN Newsroom (John Vause)
08.00 CNN Newsroom (Rosemary Church)
09.30 Taped show
10.00 Early Start
11.00 Amanpour
12.00 New Day
14.00 CNN Newsroom with Max Foster
14.30 World Sport
15.00 First Move with Julia Chatterly
16.00 Connect the World with Becky Anderson
18.00 The Express (Quest or whoever fills in)
18.30 Taped Show
19.00 Amanpour
20.00 Hala Gorani Tonight
21.00 Quest Means Business
22.00 The Lead with Jake Tapper
23.00 The Brief with Bianca Nobilo
23.30 World Sport
00.00 Your World Today (Cyril & Isa)
02.00 AC 360
03.00 Cuomo Prime Time
04.00 CNN Tonight
05.00 Amanpour


Am I getting the sense that CNN/I's 'headquarters' is going to London just as Domestic's is New York?

The schedule seems to be more clearly Europe-centric.

But even then, the schedule looks weird since the London output spills over into the overnight CET hours whereas the morning programming comes from CNN Centre where it is still overnight. In fact, the Atlanta studios are no longer used during the daytime weekday hours there.

Overall, the schedule seems messier since the Brief and YWT only airs four times a day (late Monday-late Thursday), CTW follows the Middle Eastern Sunday-to-Thursday weekday scheme, CNN Newsroom airs Friday-late Sunday night.

The Brief axed yet again, for more of CNN US' invented ''breaking news''. This show has aired only twice since last Monday. Same with YWT.

CNNI was somehow allowed to follow its own schedule today, until now.

Disgusting.....

At least it's Brianna Keilar on Domestic rather than Wolf's bombastic delivery but totally agree. This is what I was getting at last week - of course there'll be occassions where it makes sense for CNNI to simulcast Domestic but it often seems the norrm rather than the exception.

This "breaking news" really isn't worth throwing the CNNI schedule out the window for. There's an element of the boy who cries wolf about it - they dump CNNI shows so often that on the ocassions it's actually warranted it feels like just another simulcast but thana big story.This CNN breaking story is so massive that none of BBC, Sky or Al Jazeera seem to give two hoots about it.

It's because CNN is a real news organization in touch with the real world. The BBC, Sky and Al Jazeera don't really exist. None of us non-Americans really exist. We're all mirages and illusions. There's nothing outside the USA but a void.
