CNN correspondents (l-r) Sara Sidner, Ben Wedeman, Kyung Lah, Nic Robertson, Arwa Damon, Anderson Cooper, Matthew Chance, Hala Gorani, and Ivan Watson gathered at the Time Warner Center Dec. 2 for a taping of “CNN on the Frontlines”
Earlier this month, just for a matter of hours really, CNN’s intrepid foreign correspondents left their beats covering the Middle East, North Africa and beyond, gathering at the Time Warner Center in New York. TVNewser was there as the correspondents recounted the year that was: from the Arab Spring, to the civil war in Libya and the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear catastrophe in Japan.
Naturally, the cameras were rolling and tonight Anderson Cooper hosts a one hour special called “CNN on the Frontlines.” The broadcast airs at 8pmET and 10pmET/PT and will reair tomorrow at 8pmET and Christmas Day at 7pmET and 11pmET.

The level of what is an amazing moment or what is stressful has gone beyond anything I can ever imagine.”
