I do wonder how the likes of Hala Gorani, Becky Anderson, Quest etc feel about not being allowed to do breaking news coverage even when it's an international, non-UK, news story, these days. It's only the overnight Atlanta CNNI people that get to be on screen during breaking news, because they get to be on CNN US as well.

It's been a non stop simulcast since this news broke, with CNNI overnight taking over for a few hours, and I don't see this ending any time soon....


I've often thought CNNI should have a London based breakfast show in place of "CNN Newsroom" in the 5-9am GMT time slot similar to the old CNN Today that would cater to an international audience and would be able to simulcast to CNNUS as required. Richard Quest and/or Hala Gorani, Bianca Nobilo etc would be able to host that. Quest and Nobilo would be the best ever combo!


They did this back in 2002 and spent a fortune in billboard advertising in and around London featuring Richard Quest.

Indeed it does seem a bit odd that the 11pm-1am GMT hours when Asia is waking up/Europe is going to sleep is anchored from London meanwhile the Euopean morning bulletins are anchored from Atlanta where it's the middle of the night.
I'm sure the London team don't mind the lie-in but it feels a bit counterintuitive.

CNN London does have a presenting duo in any case that are already doing a great job in Cyril & Isa.

Nice bit of archival material there! I do remember shows like Business International and the like. Back then, the likes of Quest, Max Foster, Monita Rajpul, Becky Anderson, Andrea Sanke formed much of the line up at that time of the day and they were all very good.

A rare moment when CNN US simulcasts CNN Int because of a big interview Amanpour got with US Defense Secretary, live now.

Is there an argument to move Your World Today to European daytime (where there's a big gap without any international bulletins)?

Whenever I tune in these days, CNNI seem to take Situation Room at the drop of a hat (even sometimes when the Situation Room doesn't start with breaking news and it's an unwritten rule that The Situation Room will always begin with a breaking news sting). It does seem to happen with some regularity these days that it's more of a surprise when YWT does air. Though it does make sense for CNNI to simulcast Domestic sometimes - indeed the strike on an American airbase last night was one of those occassions and CNN were well ahead of many other broadcasters with its coverage.

So great to have Michael and Rosie co-anchoring this week, just like in the good old days. Wish this was permanent....

Would love to see a permenant Michael and Rosie pairing in the schedule. Two of CNN’s very best. A double-headed show in European mornings - if only there was a name for such a show. Something like CNN Today perhaps, that’d be a good name for a show Laughing

It's all just a little bit of history repeating.

That said, they were never official co-anchors of a show but Rosemary was one of the main female fill in anchors on Your World Today (original edition) so they worked together many, many times over the years.

Michael anchored second 2 hours of YWT with Daljit Dhaliwal, followed by Tumi Makgabo and finally Colleen McEdwards.

Ahhhh. Those were the days, Rados. The golden era of CNNI when it really didn’t matter who was presenting, because they were all great. And none of them thought themselves bigger than the story.

It was nice to see Rosie and Michael on together.

I’d forgotten about Colleen and Tumi. Both also excellent.

I hope CNN London’s imminent move to their new home will allow a return to some prime newscast quality.

"CNN Today" would be a great name for such a show!

Is there any news on the studio move? Last I had seen was autumn 2019 (from memory) but obviously that's been and gone so not sure what the new timeframe is.
