By the way, what's that font CNN uses to highlight COVID-related info on the right-side of the screen? They seem to have enough of having their in-house font monopolise the screen for the past four years. Or are they now transitioning to that new font (albeit very slowly)?


Is it not Helveti- I mean CNN Sans?

Not completely.

Also, Anna C from HK is on now. Nice to see HK studios utilised on weekends given that CNN no longer produces regular newscasts from there.

They are still both instances of using flash sets.
At the beginning of the pandemic Ida was set up to anchor from home. I wonder what reason she couldn’t do this again?
Good to see Ana, it’s a shame Hong Kong don’t use their studio at all anymore and just utilise flash sets.

Was Isa in a flash set, or was it the main CNN London studio with a fixed camera shot? I couldn't tell.

I suspect Isa was at CNN London for technical resilience. When Isa has covered Connect The World from home, if there were any technical difficulties, CNNI could switch to CNN/US. Overnight (US time) that isn't an option. If Isa (or anyone else) did that slot from home, I suspect someone else would need to 'studio-sit' during the broadcast in case of any problems.

It is a shame that the increase in domestic simulcasting this year has meant we’ve seen much less of some of the international presenters this year (the likes of Bianca for example).

CNNI doesn't feel like CNNI anymore. You would expect the channel to add at least a few more hours from London by this point. Where is Hala? Couldn't she do 18.00-20.00 cet? That way we would have at least some continuos daytime International coverage. The way it is now, it's CNNI shows that present breaks from non stop domestic simulcasts.

It’s just so much more exciting to see the US CNN now. I’m not sure I want to see that much from London anymore (even after the election). No one domestically is ever turning to CNN for UK stories.

That seems to be the direction of travel anyway - domestic coverage seems to be favoured over the International coverage even on stories that are International's patch (e.g. the Notre Dame fire a while back) and the coronavirus has just accelerated that move.

I appreciate your view but for me too much of the US coverage does have an infotainment hollow type feel to it (the endless pundit/analyst line-ups don't help in that regard and neither do the usual countdowns to events or constant 'BREAKING NEWS' - Wolf's show is particularly bad for both) and it's more a rolling US politics channel aimed at the political anorak than a news channel. Added to that your average viewer in say Nairobi or Seoul doesn't have give two hoots most of the time about a US House Judiciary committee - if they're even aware of such a committee.

The International output more has much more of a 'proper news' feel to it for me with the all-round presentation, strong standard of anchors and correspondents and the wider range of material covered. Give me Hala Gorani, Becky Anderson, Michael Holmes,Bianca Nobilo & Rosemary Church any day over the likes of Wolf, Chris Cuomo and Don Lemon who act like they are the news. And certainly I've tuned in less to CNN this year than I normally would this past year.

I'll put on CNNI in the morning still, as it's normally still CNN(I) Newsroom, but other than that, I'm not watching much else on the channel at the moment. Endless US Politics/US News in general is a massive switch off for me. Perhaps I'm unusual, but what used to be great about CNNI, and what hopefully will be again, is it's coverage from all around the world, presented in an engaging, accessible way with a little bit of personality

Not sure what they’ll do if Trump loses. He’s their raison d’etre whenever I have tuned in. Admittedly, infrequently since it became a domestic simulcast.
