CNN International Editor Off to Anchor in India

By Chris Ariens 

When CNN International editor Archith Seshadri returned to his native Chennai, India late last year to volunteer to help flood victims, the journey from Atlanta turned into a destination.

Seshadri, who joined CNN International in early 2015 as an editor on the news desk, was motivated to return to India. As fate would have it, a new news channel was in the works. When it launches next month, World Is One News, or WION, will be the first English-language news outlet from Mumbai-based Zee Media Group. The channel will report global news from a South Asian viewpoint. Seshadri will be one of the channel’s anchors.

Before joining CNN, the Georgia Tech graduate reported and anchored at stations across the south including in Charlotte, Augusta and Macon, GA.
