The two business news colleagues finally cross paths with each other, at least publicly.





To be honest, though, ever since Rico Hizon started working for CNN Philippines, the channel has better utilized their use of CNN Worldwide's resources, including talking reporters from CNN Domestic.

I think Quest left the BBC before Hizon joined, so I'm not sure they'd have previously worked together.

And what's sad is that due to the breaking news, CNN was forced to cancel its Sesame Street Town Hall.

It wasn't canceled but merely postponed a week


Still, this was something a lot of kids and parents were looking forward to and it's unfortunate that events have overtaken it. Even an MSNBC special on Covid-19 and AAs slated to air last night had vacated its originally booked timeslot.

On another note, Early Start seems to be back in its original timeslot today, though it's still one hour and for some reason, the weather bar features US cities only complete in Fahrenheit temperatures. The timepiece is now back to US times rather than GMT/CET. Why could they include these CNN/I on-screen on weekends but not so much weekday mornings?


And now the Town Hall will be repurposed to focus on race relations. Van Jones was also in the promo. It just goes to show how events can overtake plans, especially on live news channels, but it challenges the network to make the best use of its partnerships.

If I may ask, are there any on-screen CNN personalities who have been with the network since the 80s? The ‘oldest’ I know of is Wolf but his time with CNN dates back only to 1990.

Christiane Amanpour has been at CNN since 1983 although she did leave for ABC in 2010 only to return less than two years later.


Richard Roth is not on air much these days, but according to his CNN bio he is tied as the second longest serving employee. He celebrated his 40th anniversary with the network in April, so he was hired before CNN went on air:




Jeanne Moos is also an old timer. She joined in 1981. She was even a hard news reporter then!

CNNi is using the flipper today to say Amanpour will be at 1700 GMT (1800 BST) presumably because CNNI are taking the CNN US Special Remembering George Floyd at 2pm ET (1900 BST).

The Sky EPG has been updated incorrectly showing Amanpour at 1700 BST.

The flipper has now been amended to say Amanpour is at 1600 GMT

Yeah, she reported from the UN during the Gulf War.

It’s been almost a half-hour and someone has failed to turn off the international dog whilst domestic programming is going on. Couldn’t they just at least overlap it in the same position because this is just sloppy!

Didn't notice it this morning but similar happened yesterday with the GMT/CET bug underneath the ET/PT one.

Yeah I noticed that too. I mean all it takes is to flip a switch to make the graphics look neat. Someone was clearly asleep at the switch.

I assume CNNI is running skeleton staff when simulcasting, and this stuff isn't seen as priority which is why were often getting full US graphics with no Intl covering up.

No First Move again today although Julia Chatterley made an appearance on New Day to talk about US unemployment.

How much of the American news channel programmes are now made from the anchor's home? Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, Rachel Maddow, etc - do they all produce their shows from home, instead of having to do them from their various headquarters in New York City?
