  • CNN’s Ivan Watson has been promoted to Senior International Correspondent. Watson, based at CNN Istanbul, joined the network four years ago and has since covered a number of major news events right up to this morning’s suicide bombing outside the U.S. Embassy.

  • The 4th hour of the “Today” show began a new feature this morning called “Today’s Johnson’s” Baby of the Week” celebrating newborns. Parents can submit photos and words of wisdom to help new moms and dads navigate the early days of parenthood.

  • GMA’s Robin Roberts returned home to the Gulf Coast for the first time since her bone marrow transplant in September. Sam Champion and Josh Elliott are along for the ride. The “GMA” anchor was greeted by students from her alma mater, SLU. Watch.
