They seemed to be rarely showing news when I've been in US airports anyway- once the whole time I was at the gate all they were showing was a documentry on the Muppets. Seriously.

They are careful what they screen...or screened on CNN Airport Network. Thats probably why you were seeing a Muppets doc.

Quote:
The goal is to inform, entertain, and not freak out the viewers. Whereas at home, you have the ability to turn the channel (or even the TV off), you do not have that choice in the airport. If a story is not family friendly or involves a negative travel-related story, it might not make it onto Airport Network. In the end, Alison is typically the one who makes the call if something airs or not. But in the cases where stories pop up unexpectedly, those in the control room need to make the decision on the fly (pun intended).

My main memory of the airport network was an 8 hour wait in O'Hare, where it was impossible to find a seating area not near a TV showing Piers Morgan's interview with Charlie Sheen on a loop.

I'm sure it had its uses at other times.

I thought CNN Airport Network folded in the early 2000s as after that point, programmes from the main CNN channel were shown live instead. Before that, AN had dedicated programmes and presenters. Then again in the early 2010s, I found that AN existed but instead focused on sourcing programmes from Domestic and CNNI.

Interesting article. It seems possible Zucker will decide to stay on for a couple more years. Interesting comments on the impact streaming is having on entertainment tv and how CNN's live network gives them a strength amongst other TV networks.

I also found this interesting:
Quote:
Much of CNN’s revenue comes from long-term affiliation contracts around the world, says media industry analyst Craig Moffett of the independent firm MoffettNathanson. That’s the kind of cash flow Wall Street loves.


Suggests the importance of CNN International to the overall operation. I remember reading some time ago CNNI generated profit around $600m every year. If that's still the case, then that is more than half of all CNN profit (this article says CNN makes more than $1b profit annually, which would be across CNNUS, CNNI, CNN en Español etc).

The affiliation deal is why there's a CNN Philippines and CNN Brazil, and the latter of which is rumored to be in talks to take over the news department of the SBT network due to financial difficulties within SBT.

Massive ratings for CNN on Historic Double-Impeachment Day.

Per TVNewser

CNN: 3,951,000
MSNBC: 2,694,000
ABC: 2,398,000
CBS: 1,901,000
Fox News: 1,484,000


According to early data from Nielsen, 12.4 million people watched coverage of the House impeachment vote across five English-language broadcast and cable networks: CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and Fox News. NBC covered the proceedings on Wednesday afternoon as well, but Nielsen ratings for its coverage won’t be released until Friday.

Speaking of brand affiliation, I was wondering why CNN International seems to be not using CNN Indonesia for the Plane crash coverage, or even the Indonesian earthquake that just happened hours ago.

Also, CNN is re-airing the "Matter of Trust" adverts.
