It seems rather fitting that Wolf Blitzer should welcome the original CNNer, Ted Turner, into The Situation Room to honor Blitzer’s 20th anniversary with the network.
The interview airs tonight in the 6 p.m. hour of “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.” The interview touches on current events, the TV landscape, Ted’s life now and more.
These are behind-the-scenes photographs from today in the CNN studios.
