Amanpour's CNNi Series to Launch in Spring
'Amanpour' to anchor network's new primetime lineup
By Tim Baysinger -- Broadcasting & Cable, 2/1/2012 12:27:43 PM
Amanpour will air at 3 p.m. and repeat at 5 p.m. (ET) on weeknights, meaning the half-hour show will air in primetime throughout Europe.
"We are delighted to see Amanpour return to the heart of CNN International's lineup," said Maddox. "Christiane has proven herself time and time again to be the leading international journalist in television news and with [Liza McGuirk]'s commitment to producing compelling television, Amanpour will showcase the very best CNN has to offer."
"I'm thrilled that Christiane's powerful, utterly original journalistic voice will once again be heard around the world, and I look forward to helping her shape an important program at a time of great globalchange," said McGuirk, who will serve as executive producer.
Amanpour will anchor CNNi's new lineup, which also includes International Desk, Quest Means Business, Connect the World with Becky Anderson, Piers Morgan Tonight as well as a new weekday news program anchored by Isha Sesay.
Amanpour announced back in December that she was leaving her post as anchor of ABC's This Week at the end of 2011 to launch Amanpour, but will continue to have a role at the network.
