Looks nice, though I still think it's a little weird to have Hong Kong as the backdrop.

At a glance, the studio feels Cuomo Primetime-ish with its color...

I've just realised now that the studio had been in use already. It does have the feel like a near replica of the New Day/QMB/Cuomo studio in NY. Too bad most viewers saw this studio for less than a month before the pandemic forced WFH arrangements. Who thinks this will be redesigned to comply with social distancing guidelines? IMO, most of the existing in-studio setups seem like a slight eyesore. Just look at BBC's Breakfast and some US local news outlets.

Christ, that looks awful. Looks less like the guest is on a video wall and more like a giant sat at the desk.
Aspiring continuity announcer.

HAHA! Class! It really does!
Please excuse any typing errors. I am on my third butterfly keyboard (Mac). An update is due the minute what I want is released. Smile

Not sure if this is the right space, but this looks like the former CNN Newsroom in Time Warner Center, where the cramped newsroom set and CNN Business newsroom was. Kinda sad to see it striped down.

This has been announced some time ago. He has been doing the second hour of CTW, following Hala, for 2 weeks now. I really like him.

So a while back CNN international dropped News to show Golf. Now at 1.15am on the 5th of July UK time they're not showing the 4th of July special that they've been promoting all day. They have a documentary "Trump the Law" on instead. Followed by hours of the usual filler. Now I would have taken the 4th of July Special over repeats and those strange programmes about Africa and South Korea that feel like they've been paid for. It's been a very long time since I've gone to CNN for real news, which is sad because they do seem to have very talented Journalists in the International bit of the organization.

I do still tune in during the small hours over here as it's a useful reflection on a liberal mindset. You'd have real problems however if it was your only source of information.

Can I ask, is it abnormal for an Irish person to watch CNN International? It seems among my circle of friends and coworkers, I'm the only one that watches it frequently.

Granted, I've lived in the States so that's what may have started my interest in it (though the version in America is CNN US not CNN International).

I'm surprised people don't watch it more here given the Americanization of British/Irish media in terms of Netflix and other TV Shows.

I'm Irish and have watched it since the nineties. Having said that, when I go home, I've never seen anyone watch CNN. Sky News seems to be everywhere. For those that want international news, I've seen quite a bit of Al Jazeera - no idea why!

In Northern Ireland or the Republic? If it's the latter, I'm surprised by this since Sky News has such a strong focus on UK domestic news. (And now that the UK has left the EU, British news isn't all that relevant to other Europeans, but perhaps Ireland is different because of its history.)

It's not abnormal but it certainly isn't the first choice of Irish Viewers. That appears to be Sky News. There were a lot watching it in the 90's and into the 2000's but it's fallen away in recent years as it's not really a news channel any more in the sense of BBC News or Al Jazeera. I still watch out of habit, and to be fair when there's an American election on or Primaries it's the only real choice in the UK/Ireland.

Sky News has been available on Irish cable companies since it launched in 1989 - apart of course from the Cablelink Sky TV dispute in 1992-1994 when Sky whipped off their main channels from that cable company.
