Anthony Bourdain is heading to CNN and CNN International for a new weekend show. The network says the new programming will “creat[e] a signature showcase for the network’s coverage of food and travel.” He’ll also be a commentator on other CNN programming. He’ll finish out his final episodes of the Travel Channel’s No Reservations and The Layover, another Travel Channel show, with those episodes to air through 2013. Bourdain will be working with the same people who helped him produce his Travel Channel shows. [via]
New Orleans Times-Picayune employees will start learning who stays and who goes on June 4 or 5. Those who stay will be offered new positions and there is talk of bringing on new hires. In addition, there have been changes in how news is being reported on the website. Last week we learned that the Times-Picayune will be published in print just three times per week, making New Orleans the largest U.S. city without a daily paper.
In other New York news, that publication has partnered with Dwell for a co-branded print publication about architecture and design that will go out with the October issue of Dwell and the September 24 issue of New York. A weeklong design festival will be taking place October 1 through the 7.
