CNN International to launch new programming

CNN International, which reaches more than 400 million households around the world, is launching new programming from September 24, 2019.

Broadcasting live at 2.30am IST, The Brief with Bianca Nobilo will provide viewers with an incisive look at the most significant live events and stories of the last 24 hours. This dynamic new half-hour show will showcase CNN’s distinctive and agenda-setting reporting.

From 3.30am-5.30am IST Your World Today with Isa Soares and Cyril Vanier will break down the most important stories around the world, giving context and informing viewers in Asia about the stories that will help shape their day ahead.

These new shows follow the successful launch of CNN Newsroom with Max Foster, which airs weekdays at 5.30pm IST.

Additionally, CNN International is expanding Connect the World with Becky Anderson – the network’s flagship daily programme anchored live from CNN Abu Dhabi – by an hour to give viewers more in-depth interviews with the big names and key political figures shaping the Middle East. This two-hour show airs from 7.30pm IST.

CNN’s weekend lineup will also be enhanced with the addition of CNN Newsroom with Robyn Curnow and CNN Newsroom with Michael Holmes from CNN’s headquarters in Atlanta.

Mike McCarthy, SVP of Programming and General Manager, CNN International, said: “We are delighted to be launching these new shows – which will form a key part of our industry-leading European evening and Asia morning programming lineup – and renewing our commitment to the Middle East with the expansion of Connect the World. International coverage is at the core of what makes CNN unique, and we are committed to delivering first-class reporting to audiences around the world.”
