During the work day (9am-4pmET), CNN has long relied on “CNN Newsroom” to bridge the gap between its morning shows and “The Situation Room.” Now the network seems to be switching it up a little bit, tweaking the long-running format. At NoonET today, CNN launched a new hour of “CNN Newsroom” called “Newsroom International.”
The hour looks a lot like the typical “CNN Newsroom” programming, but instead of talking U.S. politics or business, the hour focuses on international news and events. Given what is happening in Syria, and the elections in Egypt and Greece, the timing for the new format couldn’t have been better.
Suzanne Malveaux, who anchors “CNN Newsroom” from 12-2pmET, also handles “International Newsroom.” She will be joined by CNN International anchors Richard Quest, Michael Holmes and Hala Gorani.
CNN has been making tweaks to its programming lineup over the last few weeks, most notably canceling “John King USA” and adding an extra hour of “Situation Room.”
The logline for the new hour is after the jump.
Newsroom International takes viewers around the world in 60 minutes covering the day’s most important global news, trends and destinations. Anchor Suzanne Malveaux will be joined by CNN International anchors Michael Holmes, Richard Quest and Hala Gorani as well as reporters from CNN’s 33 bureaus around the world.
