CNN’s Anthony Bourdain is making the rounds this week promoting “Parts Unknown,” his new CNN show which will debut on Sunday. Bourdain sat in on CNN’s editorial meeting today, TVNewser hears, and was given a warm introduction by Jeff Zucker. Wednesday, the channel will fete Bourdain at a party in Time Warner Center.
He also appeared on “Starting Point,” where he talked about why he joined CNN:
“There is nothing more political than food,”Bourdain says. “When you shoot in places like Congo or Libya, politics tends to intrude hourly.”
